Actor and filmmaker Corbin Bernsen recently spoke with News Studio 5 to discuss his upcoming docuseries about his personal faith journey.
Bernsen shared that filming the series with two cameras running at all times allowed for a level of authenticity and transparency that he believes is necessary for discussing faith.
Bernsen explained that he felt called to create the series as a way to share his faith with others.
He had previously been hesitant to talk about his beliefs, but after experiencing personal struggles and overcoming them through faith, he felt a desire to share his story.
Throughout the filming process, Bernsen said he learned that there is no such thing as "perfect faith."
He admitted to having doubts and questions about God and religion, but also said that those doubts only strengthened his faith in the end.
Bernsen also commented on the importance of community in maintaining a strong faith.
He said that the support he received from others in his church and in his personal life was crucial in helping him overcome his struggles and stay true to his beliefs.
The series will focus not only on Bernsen's personal journey, but will also feature interviews with pastors and other religious leaders to provide a broader perspective on faith.
Bernsen hopes that the series will encourage viewers to engage in their own personal journeys and to seek out support from others in their communities of faith.
In discussing the series with News Studio 5, Bernsen emphasized that he did not want to preach or force his beliefs on anyone.
Instead, he hopes to start a dialogue and connect with others who may be struggling with their own faith.
Despite the challenges of discussing such a personal topic, Bernsen said that he was grateful for the experience and for the opportunity to share his story with others.
He hopes that viewers will find the series to be both engaging and encouraging, and that it will inspire them to explore their own personal faith journeys.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has postponed the governorship and state assembly elections, which were originally scheduled for March 11, to March 18, 2023.
The decision is due to the commission's inability to promptly reconfigure the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) machines, which were used for the presidential election held on February 25, for the state elections.
INEC was previously restrained from altering the information embedded in the BVAS machines until due inspection was conducted and Certified True Copies (CTC) were issued to candidates who challenged the outcome of the presidential election.
However, the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal has now given INEC permission to reconfigure the machines.
INEC stated that the decision was taken to ensure that data from the previous election was adequately backed up and that the data would be available in INEC cloud facilities while maintaining the granting of access to all litigants to election materials.
Drew Barrymore's show has been renewed for a fourth season, and her life is in a good place - she's sober, co-parenting, dating, and has great friends.
However, Cameron Diaz, one of her closest friends, has spoken in a new profile about Barrymore’s previously publicized alcohol addiction, and how she supported her through it.
Barrymore has been open about her struggles with substance abuse since childhood.
She began drinking heavily after divorcing Will Kopelman, causing her therapist to stop working with her and alienating some of her friends.
Diaz said watching that time was "difficult,” but that she knew Barrymore would find her way with their support.
They've been friends since the 90s and frequently work together, and Barrymore has talked about her past addiction troubles on her show, where Diaz has made appearances.
Barrymore started her show after CBS approached her in 2019, which motivated her to get sober.

Former NBA player Pau Gasol recently had his jersey retired by the Lakers, marking him as the 12th player in the team's history to receive such an honor.
He shared how overwhelming it was to be recognized alongside players like Kobe Bryant and Magic Johnson, and how as a child he never could have imagined playing for the NBA's most prominent teams.
Gasol also spoke about how he worked hard to overcome criticism that European players were softer on the court compared to their American counterparts, gaining 15 pounds of muscle in a single year.
He now believes he is partly responsible for the league's shift towards having fewer borders and a greater presence of international players.
Gasol also discussed his philanthropic efforts, including his work with the Gasol Foundation, which combats childhood obesity by encouraging better eating habits and physical activity.
English indie rock band Florence and the Machine's lead vocalist, Florence Welch, amazed the audience in Melbourne with her ethereal blue chiffon gown during their concert.
This comes after Welch's appearance at the Gucci womenswear show at Milan Fashion Week last week wearing a flowing grey chiffon gown.
The stunning floor-length pleated dress with a train was accentuated by Welch's high neckline finished with tight ruffles and flared sleeves left in soft pleats.
She paired the dress with black stiletto heels with silver studs embellishing the ankle and foot straps.
The singer accessorized with chunky gold rings and a light yellow sequined bag with a pearl-beaded clasp.
Welch's long fiery locks were styled with soft curls, and her shaggy fringe almost fully obscured her eyes.
Lamb has never quite caught on in the United States but is considered as a staple meat in many parts of the world.
However, Americans' attitudes to lamb are steadily changing.
The start of the spring lambing season coincides almost perfectly with Easter, a Christian holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Christianity being the largest religion in Europe, many national food cultures have special holiday recipes specifically for lamb.
Beyond being excellent, flavorful meat, there is a symbolic significance behind serving it at Easter.
A verse from the Bible references "The Lamb of God," and in John 1:29 when John the Baptist loudly proclaims: "Behold, The Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!"
Jesus Christ, with whom the lamb has become symbolically linked.
Throughout history, as Christianity grew and expanded, lambs were no longer sacrificed for sacrifice's sake.
Eating lamb at Easter stemmed from acknowledging Jesus' sacrifice and ultimate triumph after rising from the dead.
In Greece, whole lamb is roasted on a spit with this religious significance and marks the end of the 40-day meat and dairy fast of the Great Lent of the Eastern Orthodox Church.
Roasted lamb, braised lamb leg, lamb stew, lamb cassoulet, and many other iterations are consumed in honor of the holiday.
Lamb remains significant as this symbol of sacrifice, reminding many Christians of why they celebrate Easter in the first place.
After Rob Steele's fiancée was killed in a mass shooting in Raleigh, North Carolina last October, he red-flagged himself by handing over his firearm to a doctor after unloading the magazine and putting the ammunition back.
Steele joined Democratic lawmakers to discuss gun-reform bills aimed at preventing mass shootings and suicides.
One of the proposed measures would create a red-flag law, which would allow courts to temporarily take guns from people after determining whether they are a danger to themselves or others.
Another bill would allow people to voluntarily surrender unwanted guns and authorise law enforcement agencies to destroy certain firearms.
North Carolina's police departments cannot currently destroy guns because of a state law.
Another proposed gun bill would require people to obtain a permit before buying a long gun, which appears to contradict the aims of a Republican bill (to repeal the pistol purchase permit required to obtain a firearm in North Carolina).
One of the primary sponsors of an omnibus bill titled "The Gun Violence Prevention Act" is seeking universal background checks before a person can buy a gun, and the act would make it a misdemeanor for a minor to possess or buy a long gun.
It would also outlaw bump stocks.
Seven mass shootings have occurred in North Carolina since the beginning of the year, demonstrating the prevalence of gun violence as a public health crisis.
