NEW YORK — “The Dr. Oz Show” has teamed up with Hollywood producer and author DeVon Franklin, and a few of his friends, for special “Faithful Fridays” segments to inspire viewers to put their faith into practice in all areas of their lives.

“His platform has always been very faith-friendly and from the beginning of the show, he’s always explored themes of faith. So this endeavor that we’re doing is really to take it to the next level and really begin to have a more intimate, more consistent conversation about the role that spiritual health plays in our lives,” Franklin said of his partnership with Dr. Mehmet Oz.

Dr. Oz, a professor of surgery at Columbia University in NYC who still practices medicine, said faith has always been a part of his life and how he seeks answers for questions science cannot answer.

He said he was “blessed to be friends with people who have talents and skill-sets that I don’t have.”

Joining Franklin and Oz for the February-only “Faithful Friday” segments are: best-selling author and Bible teacher Priscilla Shirer; the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference said to represent millions of evangelicals; and Carl Lentz, pastor of the popular Hillsong NYC church and pal of celebrities like singer Justin Bieber and the NBA’s Kevin Durant.
