Yesterday, the Oprah Winfrey Network spotted at a private luncheon in the Roxy hotel, gave a small group of New York press a sneak peak of their new series “GREENLEAF”.
The executive producers Oprah Winfrey, Craig Wright (“Lost,” “Six Feet Under”) and Clement Virgo (“The Book of Negroes”) were at the post-screening Q&A and with the cast members. Read the Synopsis of the series as it premieres on two nights, June 21 and 22 on OWN, and the sneak peek at oprah.com. Check your local listings and photos above, credit to Bernard Smalls.
Synopsis: “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.
