DeVon Franklin Speaker Biography


DeVon Franklin is an award-winning Film & TV producer, best-selling author, internationally-known preacher and motivational speaker. A recognized authority on spirituality, faith and the entertainment business, Franklin is committed to using the power of media as an inspirational tool. Beliefnet calls him one of the "Most Influential Christians Under 40," Variety Magazine named him one of the "Top 10 Producers to Watch," and Ebony Magazine has named him one of the "Top 100 Influential African-Americans in America." Author of two best-selling books, including the recent New York Times #2 best-seller THE WAIT which he co-wrote with his wife actress Meagan Good, DeVon uses his platform to empower the masses through his speaking, preaching, producing movies & tv shows, books, postings on social media to his over 1 million followers and regular television appearances.

Franklin is the President & CEO of Franklin Entertainment, a dynamic multi-media entertainment company that produces inspirational and commercial content. Franklin Entertainment recently signed a new multi-year first-look film deal with 20th Century Fox. Franklin has produced the hit film MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN starring Jennifer Garner and Queen Latifah, made for a modest $13 million it grossed $73 million at the world-wide box office to date, making it one of the top-grossing faith-based films of all-time. Franklin is also exec-producing the upcoming animated film THE STAR, for Sony Pictures Animation, slated for release November of 2017, the first faith-based animated film to be released by a major Hollywood studio since THE PRINCE OF EGYPT. In addition, Franklin has several projects in various stages of development including, film adaptations of the inspirational true story THE IMPOSSIBLE and the powerful re-incarnation story THE BOY WHO KNEW TOO MUCH for 20th Century Fox; the high-profile reboot of HE-MAN and the MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE franchise at Columbia Pictures; and a remake of the classic 1970s film COOLEY HIGH with Common at MGM.  On the TV side, Franklin is also producing a reimagining of the iconic film FOXY BROWN at HULU, with Meagan Good attached to star.

Franklin began preaching at the age of 15 and begins interning for Will Smith at the age of 18. This unique combination of ministry and entertainment expertise has helped him develop a rare perspective on faith, love and success which has led to him becoming an in-demand public speaker and television personality. He is a regular on The Dr. Oz Show and is his go-to guy on spirituality and life transformation.  He's also has made appearances on The Dr. Phil Show, CBS This Morning, Entertainment Tonight, The Meredith Vieira Show, The Real, CNN, FOX News, Iyanla's Fix My Life and Oprah's Super Soul Sunday.

Franklin is a newly elected member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) where he chairs the Executive Branch subcommittee on Diversity. As the former Senior Vice President of Columbia Pictures, he was one of the highest ranking African-American studio executives in the industry and during his near 10 year tenure at Columbia Pictures, he championed some of Hollywood's biggest box-office hits such as THE PURSUIT of HAPPYNESS, THE KARATE KID, JUMPING THE BROOM and HEAVEN IS FOR REAL.

Franklin earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship along with a minor in Cinema-Television from the University of Southern California. He lives in Los Angeles with Meagan.
