You Have Not Yet Had Your Dr. Phil of Bishop T.D. Jakes, But You Will

They're soon to be Dallas' dynamic duo of daytime TV: Mark Donald, who wrote the first substantive profile of Phil McGraw for the paper version of Unfair Park way back when, notes that CBS Television Distribution is prepping a syndicated series hosted by The Potter's House honcho and frequent Dr. Phil guest T.D. Jakes. And it will make its bow in the fall of 2009, courtesy Dr. Phil and son Jay's production company, Stage 29. Notes The Hollywood Reporter, the show will "center on such topics as relationships and family issues," which seems absolutely revolutionary for daytime television. --Robert Wilonsky
