The premiere of “Starving for Salvation” is scheduled for February 4, 2023 on the film channel Lifetime. The story focuses on Shamblin’s success with her controversial diet plan, in which she incorporated Christianity. The film’s production company says of Shamblin: “At the height of her power and influence, Gwen demanded that church members alienate themselves from all who were not members. She banned those who became obese, threatened legal action against dissenters, and advocated severe punishment for those who disobeyed church teachings.” (praise)
