Not quite your traditional spiritual movie,  as it will deal with taking a stripper from the club to the pulpit.

It was written by Rhonda Baraka and directed by Rockmond Dunbar. The film was shot in Atlanta, Georgia. Pastor Brown stars Salli Richardson, Nicole Ari Parker, Michael Beach, Monica, and Keith David. This film was the debut of R&B singer Grammy-winner India.Arie as an actress and even a cameo appearance by mega church pastor, Creflo Dollar who does a pretty good job.

Pastor Brown Plot

When her father unexpectedly becomes terminally ill, Jessica (“Jesse”), an exotic dancer, returns home for the first time in over a decade. As her father’s dying wish, he asks her to take over as head of Mount Olive Baptist Church. The news turns her and her family’s life upside down. Jesse accepts her father’s commission, thereby pitting herself against her sister and most of the leadership at Mount Olive who know her secret past.

Through accepting her father’s request, Jesse embarks upon a course that changes her world forever. Not only does she reconnect with her family and her teenage son, but she also finds the dignity and self-love she lost so long ago.

The film will star Salli Richardson-Whitfield and  although she plays one person, Salli Richardson-Whitfield’s role embodies two different mind states by playing a woman who transformed from a stripper to a church pastor. Dual personalities aside, Richardson-Whitfield had no trouble getting into character in light of her growing up in a Baptist church.

[quote]“This was not a foreign subject for me as far as once we got into the church stuff. I know what that is,” she stated. “I know what it’s like to watch all those preachers preaching and what sort of that rhythm is, especially in the Black church like that. I know about the women who are the “church women” who are supposed to be living by the Bible and being very Christian but sometimes aren’t necessarily like that. And then you also have the good people.”[/quote]

As for getting into stripper mode, luck was on Richardson-Whitfield’s side as “Pastor Brown” came along as the acting veteran just began taking Sheila Kelly’s S Factor pole dancing classes.

“I had literally been taking them for a few months. So I was like ‘great’ and we were about to do this,” Richardson-Whitfield recalled. “I found actually a stripper to work with me even harder. And so I was prepared for that too. So it just kind of came at a perfect time for me.”

The long-awaited Pastor Brown will air Saturday, February 16, 2013 on Lifetime.
