Trailer Alert!! Take a look at the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) extended trailer for “Greenleaf” from Lionsgate and Emmy-nominated writer/producer Craig Wright. This megachurch drama will debut with a two-night premiere on June 21 and 22. Set you r DVR’s!!
“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!
