Move over ‘Empire,’ here comes ‘Greenleaf‘! The 13-episode series comes from Lionsgate Television and centers on the unscrupulous world of the Greenleaf family and their sprawling Memphis megachurch, where scandalous secrets and lies are as numerous as the faithful.
It will be ‘Dynasty’ Meets Joel Osteen‘s Lakewood Church with a dash of Creflo Dollar and Bishop TD Jakes. Greenleaf is described as 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. The series is described as a multi-generational matrix of deception that involves the church’s founding family and extends to its congregation, prominent members of the Memphis community and beyond. Yet, amid the mayhem and deception, the power of something greater persists, calling everyone to conscience for their sins.
Production is scheduled to start soon.
