Devon Franklin & Oprah *While there have been major outcries about the abysmal state of television programming recently, Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network has been running a series called “Super Soul Sunday,” which is dedicated to nourishing the “mind, body and spirit” of the viewer in order to “help viewers awaken to their best selves and discover a deeper connection to the world around them.”

Self-help gurus Deepak Chopra, Tony Robbins and Iyanla Vanzant have appeared on the show, says The Root.

A recent “Super Soul Sunday” show featured film producer DeVon Franklin, who recently married actress Meagan Good. The 2011 The Root 100 honoree, is described as “Columbia Pictures’ 33-year-old wunderkind vice-president of production.”

Franklin, who is a high-profile producer in the Hollywood film industry, is also a devout Seventh-day Adventist and preacher, who puts his faith first in his life and career. Franklin will not accept a job if he is unable to observe his Sabbath, a stipulation he made and has maintained since his first college internship.
