Hillsong Channel’s newest docuseries, “Now with Natalie” features in-depth conversations with today’s leading figures in entertainment, sports and fashion about finding purpose beyond fame. Co-executive produced and hosted by fashion stylist and influencer, Natalie Manuel Lee, the show will lift back the veil on celebrity life to give viewers an inside look at how they grapple with industry pressure and define happiness on their own terms.
The show’s first season, which premieres March 3, opens with model & actress Hailey Bieber and will also highlight conversations with multi-platinum selling music artist & Grammy winner, Kelly Rowland, NBA star Tyson Chandler, FEAR OF GOD designer, Jerry Lorenzo, award-winning journalist and former Teen Vogue Editor-In-Chief, Elaine Welteroth and celebrity fitness coach and motivational speaker, Angela Davis.
Manuel Lee developed the show with Hillsong Channel to explore society’s obsession with pop culture and celebrity and take a closer look at the role social media can play in one’s need to compete and compare with their peers. She seeks to differentiate the “highlight reel” from the truth through authentic storytelling and her guests’ shared experiences.
“The purpose of this show is to dismantle the counterfeits of identity and purpose currently being sold to us through popular culture,” said Manuel Lee. “We’re all searching for an external win to satisfy that internal longing and this series takes a deeper dive into solutions for that.”
“Now with Natalie” is set to air on Hillsong Channel beginning Sunday, March 3 at 7:30 p.m. pacific and will also be available on-demand via Hillsong Channel NOW. For more information on “Now with Natalie,” visit https://hillsongchannel.com/natalie.
Groundbreaking Worship and Ministry Network, Hillsong Channel, Launches June 1st
Global faith-and-family broadcast leader Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) and Hillsong Church, one of the most recognized global church and worship ministries, have announced the June 1st launch of the Hillsong Channel, a ground-breaking new 24-hour television network combining dynamic ministry, teaching, and conferences featuring renowned pastors and Christian leaders, with energetic, cutting-edge worship from award-winning singers, songwriters, and musicians.
In announcing the partnership of TBN and Hillsong in the innovative new network, TBN Chairman Matthew Crouch noted the phenomenal influence that Hillsong worship has had across the earth. “Every Sunday at least fifty million Christians sing Hillsong worship songs in churches across the earth,” he said, adding that every day TBN’s thirty-plus inspirational networks are carried around the world on over eighty satellite channels. “Beginning June 1st, nearly a dozen of those satellite channels will be devoted to the newest member of the TBN family — Hillsong Channel,” he said. “That’s how important we feel it is to get the life-changing ministry and worship of Hillsong to every corner of the earth.”
Viewers of Hillsong Channel will have 24-7 front-row access to all the best from Hillsong’s popular international conferences, along with dynamic worship from gifted groups, singers, and songwriters such as Hillsong Worship, Hillsong United, Young & Free, Reuben Morgan, Joel Houston, Taya Smith, and many others. There will also be plenty of life-changing teaching from Christian leaders like Hillsong Senior Pastors Brian and Bobbie Houston, including Bobbie’s “Sisterhood” outreach, which is inspiring and equipping a generation of women to walk in their God-ordained destiny.
Since its beginnings over thirty years ago as one small congregation in Sydney, Australia, Hillsong Church has added vibrant congregations in such key cities as London, Paris, Stockholm, Cape Town, Buenos Aires, New York, Phoenix, Los Angeles, and more — making the ministry of Hillsong truly international in flavor and perspective.
“We are excited about this dynamic new partnership with TBN that will take the message of God’s glory to the nations,” said Hillsong Pastor Brian Houston. “Whether through Hillsong worship and conferences or through other programs and teaching airing on Hillsong Chanel, the whole goal is to bring the Gospel in a real and relevant way to as many people as possible.”
Following its June 1st launch Hillsong Channel will be available to over 77 million U.S. households via:
– TBN’s full-power stations in 37 major markets, including New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, Atlanta, and Miami — to name just a few.
– Major U.S. satellite and cable providers, including DirecTV, Dish Network, Glorystar, AT&T U-verse, Verizon Fios, Comcast, Charter Communications, and Time Warner, along with scores of regional and local cable systems.
Additionally, Hillsong Channel will reach over 100 million television households around the world through Sky and other satellites, as well as via countless in-country cable providers and broadcast channels.
“With its emphasis on award-winning contemporary worship, relevant teaching, and ministry, Hillsong Channel is set to impact millions more individuals and families with the message of hope and grace that has been TBN’s hallmark for the past forty-three years,” said Matthew Crouch. “In fact, we believe that this exciting new partnership between TBN and Hillsong is destined to broaden the scope and outreach of faith television worldwide.”
