It must be nice to have your own TV network so you can act, produce and air your own projects. Oprah Winfrey will star in the upcoming series, Greenleaf. Here’s the premise of the family drama via Orethapedia:
“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, “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.
Here’s where Oprah comes in…
Later, blues club owner and Grace’s aunt Mavis (Oprah Winfrey, “Selma”) discuss the circumstances of Faith’s death and Mavis reveals some shocking information about Grace’s uncle “Mac” (Gregory Alan Williams, “Terminator Genisys”).
Mavis is still estranged from the Greenleaf family and it starts to become evident that she intends to use Grace to sow the seeds of its destruction.
So apparently, Oprah’s character is gonna be kicking up some drama as the family pot stirrer! We love it! Check out the super trailer and let us know if you’ll be watching when Greenleaf premieres on Tuesday, June 21 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on OWN?
