BET announced its slate of programs for the new season on Tuesday, April 2nd. Making a return is Bobby Jones Gospel, the longest continually running original series on cable television and the network’s flagship gospel program, the gospel competition Sunday Best hosted by Kirk Franklin and the ever popular Celebration of Gospel hosted by Steve Harvey.
Adding to the network’s line up is the much anticipated debut of The Sheards, a reality show following the lives of siblings Kierra and J Drew Sheard and their parents Bishop J Drew Sheard and Karen Clark Sheard. BET is also excited about the premiere of TD Jakes Presents: Mind Body and Soul, a talk show fronted by noted spiritual leader and motivator Bishop T D Jakes covering a wide range of topics including health and wellness, finance and relationships. The show will air on Sundays beginning in the fall of 2013 .
