T.D. Jakes is expanding his media empire, and is now moving into *secular* TV, with 2 new shows: first, a weekly program based on his latest book, “Instinct: The Power to Unleash Your Inborn Drive,” and second, a daily talk show.
Both new series will be produced via his TDJ Enterprises, and partner 44 Blue Productions.
The weekly talkie will use Jakes’ book “Instinct” as a base, and will feature Jakes sharing stories about people who have made a difference in in their communities/the world.
“For years, people from all walks of life have found both healing and motivation from T.D. Jakes’ message,” said Rasha Drachkovitch, president of 44 Blue Prod.
By the way, Jakes also owns a music label – Dexterity Sounds – which has a deal with EMI Gospel Music. His album “A Wing and a Prayer,” received a 2014 Grammy for best Gospel Choir or Chorus Album.
No other details on both new original programs, as well as what homes each of the 2 new series will reside. I assume they’re being shopped around to TV networks currently, to gauge interest.
Theses 2 new series are being developed with executive produced by Stephanie Drachkovitch, along with Adriane Hopper of Enlight Entertainment, T.D. Jakes nd and Derrick Williams of TDJ Enterprises.
