Oprah Winfrey’s OWN has added an original drama series about a fictitious Memphis megachurch where scandalous secrets and lies are as numerous as the faithful.
“Greenleaf,” from writer-producer Craig Wright (Six Feet Under, Lost), follows the Greenleaf family and their huge place of worship. According to the series description, “Greenleaf is the center of the community for the thousands of predominantly African-American members who attend services there. But beneath its steeple lies a den of iniquity — greed, adultery, sibling rivalry and conflicting values — a multigenerational matrix of deception that involves the church’s founding family but also extends to the congregation and prominent members of the Memphis community and beyond. Yet, amidst all of the mayhem and deception, the power of something greater persists, calling everyone to conscience for their sins.”
