I had the pleasure of attending an exclusive media roundtable Wednesday afternoon for Season 3 of Bounce TV’s hit series Saints & Sinners. My favorite Sunday evening drama is back and is juicier than ever!

Several of the show’s cast members were present including Clifton Powell (Rex Fischer), Demetria McKinney (Tamara Austin Calloway), Jasmine Burke (Dr. Christie Johson), Tray Cheney (Kendrick Murphy) and Dawn Halfkenny (Angela Parks).

Saints & Sinners tells the story of the conflicts among the members of a Baptist church in small-town Georgia. The plot consists of greed, corruption and murder. The series premiere episode in 2016 earned 1.3 million viewers and in second week it drew 1.5 million viewers. The second season in 2017 was seen by nearly 8.4 million unduplicated viewers and 5.7 million households across all airings on Bounce. It is the network’s “crown jewel” and one of Atlanta’s only television series featuring Atlanta-based lead actors, writers and producers.

While I can’t say too much about the new season (you’ll have to tune into my radio show UPFRONT to get that), I will say that it was definitely worth the wait. You will also see more from music stars David Banner and KeKe Wyatt (who first appeared in Season 2) as well as appearances by Robin Givens, Angie Stone and Kenya Moore.
