Author, speaker and filmmaker DeVon Franklin has a new overall deal with CBS. As president and CEO of the Franklin Entertainment production company, Franklin has already netted some significant deals with Paramount Pictures and Netflix, but this new move marks his first foray into television and is good news for anyone who’s fan of his faith-soaked entertainment stylings.
“Thanks for all the thanks and congrats! I’m beyond excited to expand into TV with CBS Studios!” Franklin wrote on Instagram. “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!”
