Anti death penalty activist Sister Helen Prejean, award winning actress Susan Sarandon, legal team member Don Knight and Illinois exoneree Nathan “Nate” Fields will appear on The Dr. Phil Show to advocate for the life of Oklahoma death row inmate Richard Glossip.

Recently receiving a whirlwind of press from Sr. Helen’s work and Ms. Sarandon, the Glossip supporters will attempt to lay out the details of his case that they believe will show that Glossip is an innocent man, although he is scheduled to be executed in McAlester on September 16

According to Glossip’s close friend Kim Van Atta, the show was originally scheduled for September 8th, but he says “I understand the show was so powerful that Dr. Phil would like to air it sooner if he can, and wants to contact his Governor.”

The new airdate is August 31.

Nathson “Nate” Fields, also a guest, will tell how he was acquitted on April 8, 2009, of double homicide for which he spent almost 20 years in prison, including more than 11 years on death row.

To date, there have been 155 exonerations in 26 different States. Oklahoma has had 10.

Knight said, “Dr Phil gave the telephone number to the Governor’s office to his TV audience and told them to call. He’s really against the injustice of executing an innocent man.”

In Oklahoma City, The Dr. Phil Show can be seen on KWTV, News9 at 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.
