The rise of digital media has no-doubt ushered in some newfound opportunities for faith and family programming. And while Christian-themed movie projects have been on the rise for quite some time now, faith-based TV shows are just starting to ramp up.
Just consider the fact that “Frankly Faraci,” a new weekly, original program is set to premiere on March 21 on the Dove Channel. Hosted by journalist Matt Faraci, the talk show will “provides viewers with an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at high-profile figures in entertainment, music, sports, business, and politics.”
The focus, according to Faraci, will be on people who are doing good things in the world.
“‘Frankly Faraci’ exists to shine a light on well-known people who are doing great things in the world and are driven to do so by their faith,” he told Faithwire on Tuesday. “We shoot the interviews in settings where the guests are most comfortable, and work really hard to give you the sense that you are sitting there right along with me and getting to know who they really are.”

It’s a program that came about after executives at Dove Channel approached Faraci about doing a show; he said he instantly jumped at the opportunity — and he’s hoping the show sends an important message to the masses about people of faith.
“The mainstream conventional wisdom about faithful people is that they are finger-wagging, ‘holier than thou,’ angry, Ned Flanders do-gooders who think they are better than everyone else,” Faraci said. “Yet, the faithful people I know are some of the most interesting, cool, fun-loving, free people you’ll ever meet. I want to change that perception.”

He’s also hoping that “Frankly Faraci” helps inspire viewers through his focus on good role models who have done some “amazing things.” Faraci believes he can inspire the audience to realize that they, too, can do amazing things if they allow God to use them. It’s with that worldview in mind that Faraci said “there is no limit.”
Starting March 21, viewers can tune in to “Frankly Faraci” via Roku, Apple TV and other streaming services. You can also get more information on the show here.
