Black in America: CHURCHED Coming October 2010

Looks like CNN’s next Black in America documentary will focus on the Black Church. It’s coming October 2010.

Just found out that one of the next “In America” installments will come in October 2010.

On Facebook, there’s already a  bug (presumably created by the CNN producers) with the graphic image for “Black in America: CHURCHED”

Time Warner Cable put out an alert for advertisers to get on board with “Black in America: Churched” earlier in the spring.

Kevin Allocca of TVNewser interviewed Soledad O’Brien about the new direction of “In America,” which apparently has an expanded staff with plans to air six documentaries a year.

Like tonight’s “Gary and Tony Have a Baby,” these next projects will be more narrowly focused than the 2008 and 2009 “In America” projects.

In the interview, O’Brien explained that Black in America: Churched (which she called “Black in America 3”) will focus on one pastor and one church.   That’s very interesting.

As an African American who spends a lot of time working in and with my church, I can’t wait to see this.
