If Mark Burnett can make Donald Trump firing people into interesting TV, then there’s no telling what he’ll be able to do with Joel Osteen. The famed televangelist — whose church is so big it takes up an old basketball arena in Houston — is teaming up with Burnett for a new reality show, according to TMZ.

In the show, ordinary people will go on missions with Osteen to, as the article states, “start fixing things” that are wrong with the country. What those things are is anybody’s guess, but knowing Burnett’s ability to market these shows to the masses, we’re going to be seeing Osteen and his charge fixing things that are more secular in nature. According to TMZ, Burnett and his wife Roma Downey (Ms. “Touched By An Angel” herself) are good friends with Osteen and his wife, so the good pastor should come off pretty well here.
