Christian author and filmmaker DeVon Franklin announced that he’s struck a deal with CBS where he plans to “create new opportunities for people of faith and people of color.”

Franklin, president and CEO of the Franklin Entertainment production company, made the announcement on Instagram on Tuesday.

“Thanks for all the thanks and congrats! I’m beyond excited to expand into TV with CBS Studios!” he wrote. “I’m excited to create new opportunities for people of faith and people of color! I believe entertainment is one of the most powerful mediums in the world and we can use it to help shape hearts and minds for the better. Now when you see the announcement of a deal, it’s the beginning of something, not the end. So now the real works begins, so please keep your prayers going up (I need them!) and I commit to doing my best to bring you the best shows I possibly can!”

Though the CBS deal marks Franklin’s first foray into television, his production company also has a multi-year first-look film deal with Paramount Pictures and a second-look deal with Netflix, according to Deadline.

He’s also behind the inspirational film “Breakthrough;” the Sony Pictures Animation film “The Starring;” and the Sony Pictures film “Miracles From Heaven.” Franklin is also working on “Flamin’ Hot,” which will tell the true story of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos; a Kirk Franklin biopic, and “Daring to Live,” the true story of four black women who go on extreme adventures to overcome their greatest fears in life.

"The truth is Christ is real, the truth is Satan's real The truth is one came to give life, one came to kill, The truth is Christ is real, the truth is Satan's realWhich truth do you choose? Which truth do you reveal? - Tunnel RatzMany Christians like to believe Yahweh exist but they pretend Satan does not. That is one of his greatest tricks. Yahweh wants us to be healthy and whole. But Satan wants the opposite of that for us. But you also have to understand this. Even though Yahweh wants us healthy, he also gave us free will. He allows us to make our own decisions and choices. But he still wants us to live a healthy life. Yahweh is not happy with his children dying of cancer, heart disease, strokes or suffering from diabetes, obesity and arthritis.Well like I said, we have the freedom to choose right.Nowadays most most Christians consider the dietary laws found…See More
