NEW YORK -- In the nearly 10 years it took for Jessica Chastain to get made a film about the Christian televangelist Tammy Faye Messner, she studied many of the kinds of things you'd expect — the hours of television footage, Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato’s 2000 documentary.

But one of the most revelatory sources was a largely forgotten WB reality show from 2002.By then, Messner had fallen from the heights of her televangelist fame after scandals brought down the multimillion-dollar ministry.
