Greenleaf, created by Craig Wright and executive produced by Oprah Winfrey and Lionsgate Television, premiered on OWN in 2016. The show revolves around the Greenleaf family who runs their sprawling Memphis megachurch, Calvary Fellowship World Ministries. The drama focuses on the journey of estranged daughter and disillusioned preacher Grace Greenleaf (Merle Dandridge) who returns home after 20 years due to the mysterious death of her sister Faith. She is sucked back into her family’s church, run by her parents Bishop James Greenleaf (Keith David) and Lady Mae Greenleaf (Lynn Whitfield), and quickly learns things are not as virtuous as they seem. The Greenleaf family carefully hides their sins and misdeeds from the world. Patti LaBelle is set to recur in the third season as Maxine Patterson, a famous Christian motivational speaker and the CEO of a global Christian self-help empire.
The show has been nominated for several NAACP Image Awards. In 2017 Lynn Whitfield won for best actress in a supporting dramatic role, and in 2018 the show’s second season soundtrack won for outstanding gospel/Christian album.
