Atlanta Talent Booked On OWN’s Upcoming Show ‘Greenleaf’
One of our Atlanta talents let us know about being booked on multiple shoots for the OWN channel’s ‘Greenleaf’. ‘Greenleaf’ is an upcoming American television drama series, created by Craig Wright, and executive produced by Oprah Winfrey and Lionsgate Television. Greenleaf will debut on the Oprah Winfrey Network on June 21, 2016.
‘Greenleaf’ follows the unscrupulous world of the ‘Greenleaf’ family with scandalous secrets and lies, and their sprawling Memphis megachurch with predominantly African-American members. The series is headed by Keith David as Bishop James Greenleaf, and Lynn Whitfield as his wife and matriarch of the family, Lady Mae Greenleaf. Merle Dandridge plays series’ protagonist, Grace Greenleaf, their estranged daughter who has returned home after 20 years following the mysterious death of her sister, Faith.
Hearing back from our talent Jackie D., she let us know that she’s been on set three times for a couple of scenes. She was originally booked for a few shoots as a church member, but then was invited back while working on set specifically for a large luncheon scene. Most shoots were around twelve hours on set, but Jackie said she had a great time and especially enjoyed the wardrobe for the luncheon scene.
