“It’s about a family that is close, a family that is flawed.” OWN has released new behind-the-scenes interviews with the cast of their upcoming series, Greenleaf.
The drama centers on Grace Greenleaf (Merle Dandridge), the estranged daughter of a megachurch bishop (Keith David) who returns home after her sister’s mysterious death. Lynn Whitfield, Kim Hawthorne, and Oprah Winfrey also star.
In one of the videos, Dandridge discusses what drew her to the series:
When I went in and I first embraced that character, it felt just like stepping into the waters that I already knew, that I already understood. It was a thrill. It was a ride I really wanted to take.”
Greenleaf launches with a two-night premiere on June 21st and 22nd.
