Bounce TV is pleased to announce the premiere of its new scripted drama “Saints & Sinners.” The one-hour series will center around the pursuit of power, intertwined with deceit, greed, corruption and murder – all set against the backdrop of a large southern church. The show will air Sunday nights beginning March 6 at 9 p.m. EST.
Greater Hope Baptist Church is the heartbeat of Cypress, GA a southern town outside Atlanta which evolved into a city over the years. The church began as a 10-member congregation when the Civil Rights Movement was at its height and being young, black and alone at night was a hazard of circumstance. As times changed, the congregation grew and so did its influence in Cypress. When a violent murder rocks the community, the church that holds the secrets of the entire town is at risk of imploding. For it seems at Greater Hope, only God and the Devil can tell the difference between a saint and a sinner.
“Saints & Sinners” cast includes Richard Lawson as Pastor Evan Johnson, Vanessa Bell Calloway as First Lady Ella, Clifton Powell as Rex Fisher, Gloria Rueben as Mayor of Cypress Pamela Clayborne, Keith Robinson as Miles Calloway, Christian Keyes as Levi, Jasmine Burke as Dr. Christie Johnson, JD Williams as Jabari and Afemo Omilami as Detective St. Charles.
The series is currently being shot in Atlanta and is produced by my friends at Swirl Films. I had a chance to go on set recently and you guys are in for a treat! I can’t wait to share some of my behind-the-scenes photos and exclusive interviews.
RC will definitely keep you posted as we get closer to the premiere. Stay tuned!
