Greenleaf promises to be a great drama. It’s the newest show to grace the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) and not surprisingly, features appearances by Oprah. She plays the character of Aunt Mavis, her first recurring scripted television role in 20 years.
Centered around foul play at a Memphis megachurch, the original series opens up with the return of a preacher’s kid who travels home after hearing about the death of her sister.
The megachurch drama series premieres back-to-back on OWN on Tuesday, June 21 and Wednesday, June 22 at 10 p.m. After that, the show will air regularly on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. for 13 more episodes.
