Megachurch Bishop T.D. Jakes announced he's moving his syndicated talk show to the Oprah Winfrey Network, and it is scheduled to premiere on Sept. 19.

The bishop and founder of the Texas-based non-denominational megachurch The Potter's House announced through a Facebook video on Wednesday that he's already signed a partnership with the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), named after the iconic former daytime talk-show host.

"Every now and then you get an opportunity that makes you so excited you get goose pimples. That's my attitude today,"said Bishop Jakes.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the hour-long talk show produced by TEGNA Media, 44Blue Productions, EnLight Productions and T.D. Jakes Enterprises would show locally on 70 affiliates every Monday to Friday at 6 p.m. ET/PT starting Sept. 12.

The talk show filmed in Los Angeles also features Ianthe Jones as its showrunner.

OWN president Erik Logan also issued a statement on Tuesday to welcome the newest member to the OWN family.

"Oprah Winfrey is an icon and a business mogul who has become a national treasure impacting our nation with her creativity. I consider her a personal friend and I'm honored to have her support of my new show,"The Hollywood Reporterquoted the bishop as saying.

Winfrey also talked about her respect for Bishop Jakes and his church as shelaunched her TV drama "Greenleaf"early this year. The series revolved around the scandals and affairs of and the family of Bishop James Greenleaf (Keith David) and his Memphis-based megachurch Calvary Fellowship World Ministries.

The 62-year-old media tycoon said she spoke to the bishop and clarified that story doesn't point to him at all.

"I said, 'I just want you to know, from my lips to your ears, I have nothing but deep respect and regard for the church. I, Oprah Winfrey, am going to do nothing, ever, that disrespects the church," Winfrey said during a Q&A session at SoHo House Hollywood for "Greenleaf," as reported byEuroweb.
