HOUSTON (AP) — A Houston megachurch minister whose services are broadcast to audiences around the world wants to be a reality TV star.

The Rev. Joel Osteen on Tuesday announced he’s signed an agreement to work with producer Mark Burnett to develop a reality show about his mission trips with members of his Lakewood Church. The program would also feature Osteen’s wife, Victoria.

Burnett is executive producer of the CBS show “Survivor.”

Lakewood Church’s website says its broadcasts reach more than 200 million households.
