NEW YORK, Oct. 8 (UPI) -- U.S. novelist Dan Brown has agreed to sit for a rare and exclusive interview with TV's Matt Lauer, NBC said.

Brown is expected to talk about his new book, "The Lost Symbol," as well as the beliefs of the Freemasons, the power of the human mind, whether people can become gods and a little-known science that may tie them all together.

"For the hour-long report, 'Secrets of the Lost Symbol,' set to air on Friday, Oct. 16, Lauer travels to Washington D.C. to interview Brown and explore the backdrop and secrets of this new bestseller," NBC said in a release.

"'Secrets of the Lost Symbol' will take viewers behind the scenes of the secretive brotherhood of the Freemasons in an attempt to make sense of what is fact and what is fiction for all Brown's fans, and find out from the Freemasons themselves what he got right, and what he got wrong. The broadcast also goes in search of what Brown calls the true meaning of his book and why, he says, it's so unlike his others. Additionally, he speaks with Lauer at length about the beliefs of the nation's founding fathers, saying: 'America wasn't founded a Christian country. It became a Christian country.'"
