The Dove Channel – which boasts a library of nearly 500 films and 900 TV episodes approved by the Dove Foundation – will be debuting its first original series on March 21 called Frankly Faraci.    

Journalist Matt Faraci hosts the show on Dove Television, which will feature an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at some very interesting and inspirirational high-profile figures.

“It's just a beautiful opportunity to tell inspiring stories of people who are doing incredible things. and they're driven to do this because their foundation for this is their faith" Faraci told OneNewsNow.

Faraci divulged to OneNewsNow that the first episode features the musical group The Piano Guys. He explained that his new show fits into the mission of the Dove Network, which is to provide more family-friendly content for America’s television viewers.

"There's a lot of folks who complain about Hollywood – and a lot of that is justifiable – but I think when Hollywood does something positive and does something that we can all applaud … I have been saying for years that we should get behind it, Faraci impressed. “And now I feel like I'm part of the solution."

The Christian TV host announced that the streaming service is targeting the 52 million Americans who make up what is known as the "values audience" – about a third of the entertainment population.

"What they have in common is that they're parents, they have kids and they want to see stuff that the whole family can watch," Faraci stressed.
