Quinton Aaron, who starred in “The Blind Side” with Sandra Bullock, was a guest in the show’s first season.

On Thursday, August 1, New Evangelization Television (NET) debuts its highly-anticipated new show Portraits of Faith, hosted and produced by Terence Donnellan. Portraits of Faith is the brainchild of NET executive producer Craig Tubiolo and Donnellan.

“Portraits of Faith looks at what role religious faith plays in shaping an individual’s personal and professional life. It’s like MTV’s Behind the Music, but this time with God,” says Terence.

Beginning Aug. 1 at 9 PM ET, Portraits of Faith airs biweekly Thursdays on Cablevision Channel 30 and Time Warner Cable Channel 97 in the New York City area. Viewers around the world can watch the show streaming online at NETNY.net. And across the USA, NET shows are on Verizon FiOS On Demand.
