Season 3 of Pastor Greg Starts Soon

The third and final season of Pastor Greg , the world’s first Christian sitcom, kicks off the first of sixteen all-new episodes this Friday February 22nd on TBN at 11PM PST.

In true TV fashion, the season opener is fraught with hilarious twists. Following the storyline developed in the last four episodes of season two, Pastor Greg finally reveals to his wife Missy (Laura Romeo) his dream of moving to a new church. And, of course, chaos -- and hilarity -- ensues.

Suzie Zahn, the show’s publicist, announced that season three will offer viewers a rare glimpse of never-before-seen, behind the scenes footage, as well as biographies on the main cast.

“Don’t miss the 50th episode,” says Zahn. “Fans will be wowed by this special edition that includes a unique bonus -- the original auditions of the main cast members will be aired, and are sure to result in ear to ear smiles!”

Guest stars include Dawn Wells (as Greg's Mom), who baby boomers will remember fondly as Mary Ann, the farm-fresh castaway who dolled up the 1960s prime-time sitcom, Gilligan's Island. Eddie Mekka of the 1970s hit show Laverne & Shirley, as Missy’s father, also joins the cast.

“Dawn brings veteran comic timing, and a perfect understanding of how to pull the most out of the role,” says Greg Robbins (Pastor Greg). “We are honored to have her as a guest on Pastor Greg.
Eddie is a comedic genius and audiences will love him” says Greg Robbins.

Officials at TBN were pleased about season three's new crew, who worked its sitcom magic from the Uplifting Entertainment’s new studio in Carnegie, Pennsylvania.

“It takes a lot of vision, creativity, and teamwork -- as well as a wacky sense of humor -- to make a hit TV sitcom,” says Wells.

Mekka says “being on Pastor Greg is the most fun I’ve had on TV since Laverne & Shirley...what a great show!”

Pastor Greg became a runaway hit in its first season due to its zany, off-the-wall, and absolutely unforgettable congregational characters. Rather than get into a bible-thumping fest, the ground breaking half-hour comedy focuses on real folks, -- people with flaws who discover important truths about love, forgiveness, faith, and God’s family. The show airs on both Christian networks and over 100 network affiliates nationwide.

“Pastor Greg uses humor to deal with life issues everyone faces, and tries to show folks living out their faith in the real world,” says Robbins.
