Ok y’all… I’m really excited about this NEW megachurch drama Greenleaf (Lionsgate), a TV series presented by Oprah/OWN and created by one of my FAVORITE producers Craig Wright! Back in the day.. I was glued to the couch watching his HIT shows LOST and Six Feet Under. OMG, I can’t wait to see what this dynamic team has in store for us during this 2 night premiere Tuesday, May 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT and Wednesday, May 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
“Greenleaf” centers on the journey of estranged daughter and disillusioned preacher Grace Greenleaf (Merle Dandridge, “The Night Shift”) who has returned home after 20 years on the occasion of the mysterious death of her sister, Faith. As she reenters the world of Calvary Fellowship World Ministries, the Memphis megachurch run by her powerful parents Bishop James Greenleaf (Keith David, “Enlisted” and “Community”) and Lady Mae Greenleaf (Lynn Whitfield, “The Josephine Baker Story”), it becomes evident that things are not as virtuous as they seem and that the family’s outward display of faith hides sin and misdeeds.
As an added bonus… the head lady in charge is returning to scripted TV and will appear in a reoccurring role as blues club owner Mavis MacCready!
Stay tuned for more fun updates!
