On March 21 the Dove Channel, Cinedigm’s family-friendly streaming service, aired its first-ever original series, “Frankly Faraci.”

“Frankly Faraci” features host Matthew Faraci who takes viewers behind the scenes with influential and inspirational people in many facets of life — politics, sports, entertainment, music and business.

The show highlights people in these various fields who seek to use their platforms to “bring good and positivity into the culture,” Faraci’s marketing firm, Inspire Buzz, said in a news release.

The first episode featured The Piano Guys and focused on the group’s tour and international success as well as how the members ensure their faith is what drives their music.

The rest of the season will feature sketch comedy group Studio C; YouTube sensations Daniel and Lincoln Markham of What’s (In)side?; former NFL linebacker Bryan Schwartz and his wife, Diane, founders of Family Goals; hip-hop artist Propaganda; and many others.

Faraci uses his past experiences as a journalist, political strategist, government spokesperson, entrepreneur and even standup comedian to help “highlight personalities the whole family can celebrate.”

The Dove Channel, where “Frankly Faraci” airs, can be found on Roku players and Roku TV models, AppleTV, Android and iOS. The show also plays on Amazon Prime’s streaming program.
