Oprah’s Interview with DeVon Franklin, Sony Film Exec/Pastor and Meagan Good’s Fiance

In an all-new “Super Soul Sunday” on the OWN network, DeVon Franklin—a Hollywood executive who does double duty as a preacher—shares his advice on achieving success without losing yourself. The Produced by Faith author talks with Oprah about how he balances his Hollywood life with his faith.

During his interview with Oprah, DeVon tells the story of his first Hollywood interview with Will Smith’s company, Overbrook, for a film internship. He told the interviewer that he could not work on Saturdays because he observes the Sabbath. As reluctant as he was to say so, he did and the interviewer said, “Don’t worry about it, we’ll work around that.” That’s almost 100% unheard of in Hollywood! Lesson learned, “If you embrace who you are, it will open doors…not shut them.

Recently engaged to Meagan Good, DeVon constantly gushes about how she is the love of his life. “Meagan and I have incredible communication with one another. I know her heart. I know who she is. I know what God created her to be.”

I spoke with Meagan last year during a press lunch for Jumping the Broom. She was clear that she wanted to produce projects that displayed her faith and that she wanted to settle down with a man of faith. A man who did more than wore the “Christian” label. She wanted someone who purposefully pursued a God-like lifestyle. Looks like she got EXACTLY what she prayed for!

Super Soul Sunday airs this Sunday, June 17th on OWN. Produced By Faith is also now available in paperback.
