Lions Gate brings ‘God’ chats to TV

Made-fors have no network outlet yet

The bestselling book trilogy “Conversations with God” is headed to the small screen through a production deal with Lions Gate TV Pictures, Peter Guber’s Mandalay TV and Metafilmics.

“Conversations” titles have racked up sales of 4.5 million since Neale Donald Walsch’s first installment was published in 1995.

There’s no word on a network outlet for the telefilms, but the partners hope “Conversations” will be the first of a number of spiritually themed made-fors. Metafilmics, headed by Barnet Bain and Stephen Simon, produced last year’s Robin Williams starrer “What Dreams May Come.”
