Oprah going in on Black Church!!

Oprah is getting ready to open up Pandora’s box for  the black church for REAL, Chile,Check it out:

The Oprah Winfrey– and Discovery-owned cable network has handed out a straight-to-series order for megachurch dramaGreenleaf, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The 13-episode series hails from Lionsgate Television and Craig Wright (Six Feet Under, Lost, Tyrant) 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.

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 multigenerational 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.

Wright, a graduate of the United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities and a former minister, will pen the scripts and executive produce alongside Winfrey.

“To tell this potentially explosive story with Oprah, a partner who has as much respect and affection for the church as I do, whose entire body of work is infused with what I would call a faith-based humanism, is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. A blessing, even,” Wright said.
