Dr. Phil Developing Talker Around Pastor T.D. Jakes
Stage 29 Productions Eyes Fall-2009 Debut for Show Featuring Leader of The Potter’s House

Stage 29 Productions -- the production company of Dr. Phil McGraw and his son, Jay -- is developing a talk show around evangelical pastor T.D. Jakes, who makes frequent appearances on CBS’ Dr. Phil. The show would be for fall 2009.
Jakes already has a huge following. In February 2005, he was named one of the “25 Most Influential Evangelicals in America” by Time magazine. He founded and leads The Potter’s House, a multiracial, nondenominational mega-church based in Dallas. His massive empire stretches much further than the church, which now boasts more than 30,000 members.
Jakes and The Potter’s House also reach people by means of major conferences, such as “The Pastors’ and Leadership Conference,” “ManPower,” “Woman, Thou Art Loosed” and “MegaFest” -- all of which are meant to address the emotional and spiritual needs of participants. Woman, Thou Art Loosed -- based on one of Jakes’ 30 books -- set national indoor attendance records at the Georgia Dome in 1999 when an average of 84,500 people attended each day.
Bishop Jakes has been VERY annointed by God in my life and has blessed
me in many ways. So, Why do the articles announcing this show not use
the words 'Christian' and 'Jesus,' the power that T.D. Jakes stands on?
Also, is Dr. Phil a Christian? SInce when? Hallelujah! Praise CBS for
allowing a man of God to have a talk show. I work on TV and I've been
pushing for years to do a show that looks at life and relationships
through the eyes of Faith. If ANY man is annointed to bring an honest
word about living like Christ in all the challenges we face in life, T.D.
Jakes is. Bless him and Phil for putting this together. Cynthia Garrett (TV

"Jakes once called being gay a 'brokenness' and has said that he wouldnâ€™t hire an openly gay person"

I think this is awesome. Bishop Jakes knows how to motivate individuals to push past their present state and enter into their God given destiny. What an awesome move
