HBO unveils ‘Ted Haggard’ at TCA

Weinstein talks 'Ladies' Detective Agency'

HBO kicked off its Friday afternoon TCA panel by showcasing upcoming docu “The Trials of Ted Haggard” and novel adaptation “The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency.”

“I just want to say right off the bat that I have not taken money from any overseers,” quipped “Detective Agency” producer Harvey Weinstein, referencing the comments made in the earlier presentation by disgraced pastor Ted Haggard.

Haggard, whose sex and drug scandal ended his high-profile ministry career in 2006 and led to the creation of an HBO docu chronicling his dramatically changed life, spent much of his panel explaining to crix the definition of such Evangelical nomenclature as “overseers” and “restorers.”

The Haggard docu debuts Jan. 29.

“No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency,” based on Alexander McCall’s Botswana-set best-selling novels, premieres March 29.
