Patti Labelle is to flex her acting muscles with help from Oprah Winfrey.
How so? The major role she is to play in the hit African-American series ‘Greenleaf.‘
‘Greenleaf‘ is a fictional TV series that sheds light on cult-like and corrupt nature of U.S. megachurches and how said corruption sullies the lives of their followers.
Praised for its poignant handling of several social issues, the series up the ante on a casting front by welcoming Ms. Labelle to the scripted fray.
Patti is to play a extremely successful Christian mogul named Maxine Patterson who has deep and potentially dangerous ties to one of the show’s main characters.
Filming is taking place in Atlanta as you read this.
Keep it locked on TGJ for a premiere date.
