The priest who became famous for Going Rogue — among other things — has now landed a new TV show:
A priest who left Catholic church to marry a woman has earned himself a TV show. Alberto Cutie shook the world with his scandal when he was photographed kissing Ruhama Buni Canellis on a South Florida beach in 2009. He consequently left Roman Catholic Church and joined The Episcopal Church.Cutie, who has been deemed Father Oprah will now appear on “Father Albert”, an inspirational talk show about life matters. “It’ll be everything from sex to salvation,” Father Alberto told The Hollywood Reporter Tuesday, January 25 in Miami during the NATPE TV trade show.
Set to start airing in select cities later this year, “Father Albert” hopes to invite “greater dialog” with the audience. The Fox test markets will include the country’s two top markets New York and Los Angeles.
The need for an inspirational show has been high according to Jack Abernethy, CEO of the Fox TV station group. He said, “Something not dogmatic or rigid but uplifting and helpful to viewers. Such things are big business in other media like book publishing and the radio but not on television.”
