OWN’s megachurch drama series Greenleaf will receive its UK premiere on Netflix UK on Friday March 3rd, when the complete thirteen episode first season will be available to stream, TVWise has confirmed.
Greenleaf is set in the world of the Greenleaf family and their sprawling Memphis megachurch, where scandalous secrets and lies are as numerous as the faithful. Like so many megachurches in America, Greenleaf World Ministries is more than just a house of worship. It’s a home. It’s the center of the community for the thousands of predominantly African-American members who attend services there.
The drama series, which is the first OWN original to cross the pond, was created by Craig Wright (Lost, Six Feet Under) and stars Merle Dandridge (The Night Shift), Lynn Whitfield (The Josephine Baker Story), Keith David (Community), Lamman Rucker (Why Did I Get Married?), Deborah Joy Winans (Whitney), Kim Hawthorne (Switched at Birth), Tye White (The People Vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story), GregAlan Williams (The Accountant), Desiree Ross (Falling Skies), Oprhan Winfrey and Lovie Simone. OWN has already renewed Greenleaf for a sixteen episode second season.
