Televangelist Robert A. Schuller's new show for AmericanLife TV starts production this week in Dallas, headed for a Nov. 29 debut on the network he and Chris Wyatt bought in February.
The Rev. Schuller, former co-host of religious program The Hour of Power, will star in Everyday Life. The network said the show is based on a fictional small town, and the challenges the residents face. Schuller also will narrate the stories.
He and Wyatt, founder of Godtube.com, had said at the time of the network purchase that Schuller would return to television via AmericanLife TV Network, which claims about 78 million subscribers. Schuller left Hour of Power in 2008 after a reported falling out with his father, Crystal Cathedral Ministries founder Robert H. Schuller.
At the time of the network acquisition this spring, Schuller said the new show would not be "preachy."
"Viewers are looking for messages of hope and inspiration now more than ever and I hope to use my new series to reach people in an inspirational way," Schuller said in a release today.
The show is being executive produced by Aaron Norris, whose credits in television include Walker Texas Ranger, The President's Man and Logan's War. Cory Tynan (Earth: Final Conflict) also serves as executive producer and writer on the series. Alin Bijan and Dee Evans serve as producers, with Bijan directing.
The series premiere cast will feature former WCW World & US Champion star Steve Borden a.k.a "Sting," Terry Kiser (Walker Texas Ranger), actor and musician Brad Hawkins and Lydia Mackay.
