The man of God—whose popular bible study at the Beverly Hills branch of his Churchome multi-site ministry has been attended by the likes of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez—recently filmed a pilot for the streaming giant with the hopes of producing a full season. Smith is known for his charismatic sermons, his familiarity with words like “woke,” and his humble, trend-forward streetwear.
The show’s working title is Big Talk, and each one-hour episode aims to focus on discussing “the meaning of life instead of plugging a movie or book.”

But there is one factor in its corner: Heather Schuster, the executive who oversaw the production of the Big Talk pilot, is now running the company’s unscripted programming division after the departure of Conrad Riggs. So the new boss worked on this thing.
