Oprah Winfrey confronts Lynn Whitfield in new trailer for OWN Series ‘Greenleaf’ (VIDEO)

Posted by | Ray Cornelius 

It’s been 27 years since we last saw Oprah Winfrey and Lynn Whitfield on the small screen together in Gloria Naylor’s “The Women of Brewster Place.”  Now the two divas are teaming up for the new original drama series on Winfrey’s network titled “Greenleaf.”  The two-night premiere is Tuesday, June 21 at 10 p.m. EST and Wednesday, June 22 at 10 p.m. EST.

New original drama series from award-winning writer/producer Craig Wright ("Six Feet Under," "Lost") that takes viewers into the unscrupulous world of the Greenleaf family and their sprawling Memphis megachurch, where scandalous secrets and lies are as numerous as the faithful.

Merle Dandridge and Keith David

“Greenleaf” centers on the journey of estranged daughter and disillusioned preacher Grace Greenleaf (Merle Dandridge) 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) and Lady Mae Greenleaf (Lynn Whitfield), 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.

In the season premiere, directed by executive producer Clement Virgo (“The Book of Negroes”), Grace and her teenage daughter Sophia (Desiree Ross) are warmly welcomed home by Grace’s father, Bishop Greenleaf. Sparked by Grace’s return to Memphis, tensions quickly rise. At a family dinner in the Greenleaf mansion, Grace’s mother is cold and hostile. Her sister-in-law Kerissa (Kim Hawthorne) questions her about her faith and sister Charity (Deborah Joy Winans) erupts with jealousy at the suggestion that Grace might start preaching at Calvary.

Later, Grace’s Aunt Mavis (Oprah Winfrey) discusses with her the circumstances of Faith’s death and reveals some shocking information about Grace’s Uncle “Mac” (Gregory Alan Williams). Mavis is still estranged from the Greenleaf family and it becomes evident that she intends to use Grace to sow the seeds of its destruction.

Well, after three sessions of drills on Brunswick Velodrome with Whitehead and one with Melburn Hurt I realise that I’m no longer afraid that I’ll smash into the person in front of me. Or fall off.

I think a lot of problems people had were alignment with the camera, on very specific areas of material.

I was on Zoloft for almost 2 years and it did help with my anxiety at first.
It helped me function to the point where I was able to go
online and find a therapist. I was actually able to make phone

important point that even if fundamentals trend exactly as I expect,
there is no telling what kind of multiple the Street will
deem appropriate. The same is true for GNC, the main difference being that every
time Tailored reports earnings, the stock drops, whereas GNC’s stock jumped more than 25% after Q1 results.
For Tailored, the turnaround play is purely speculative.
