Look out reality fans! Guess who has a new show coming to TV? Houston-based minister and acclaimed author Joel Osteen of Lakewood Church has agreed to host a reality series.

With a televised Sunday morning worship service that reaches over 100 million homes, Joel Osteen is no stranger to television. What Osteen and Lakewood Church haven’t had is a reality show that airs in primetime. But that’s about to change.

Teaming up with Mark Burnett, famed TV producer of shows like The Apprentice and Survivorthe new show will focus on the missionary trips Lakewood Church participates in overseas.

Known for his inspirational messages and best-selling books, Joel Osteen and Lakewood Church have been in the national spotlight for years. The program will join the ranks of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and other “feel-good” TV shows.

It should be pretty interesting and draw in faith-based viewers looking for something heartwarming to watch.
