Family secrets, adultery, mayhem and more are revealed in a brand new extended trailer for Oprah Winfrey‘s highly anticipated mega-church drama “Greenleaf.” The new one-hour series, which debuts next month, features Winfrey as well as Lynn Whitfield, Keith David, Lamman Rucker, Deborah Joy Winans, Merle Dandridge, Kim Hawthorne, Tye White and more.
As previously reported, “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.
“Greenleaf” premieres two-nights: Tuesday, June 21 at 10 p.m. ET/PT and Wednesday, June 22 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on OWN. The series will regularly air on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT for the remainder of its 13-episode first season. “Greenleaf” is produced for OWN by Lionsgate Television.
