Murder, secret gays, Oprah Winfrey and Lynn Whitfield? Whats not to like?

Greenleaf: This new show centers around the Greenleaf family who run a mega church full of corruption, scandal and secrets. Daughter Charity is married to Kevin and they are planning to have a baby. At least that’s what Charity wants. Kevin is reluctant and Charity suspects he’s keeping a secret from her. Is his secret that he’s gay and having an affair with his new business partner Adrian? What do you think?

Miss Oprah Winfrey plays Mavis, a recurring role, going up against the fabulous Lynn Whitfield as Mae Greenleaf, who will do anything to keep the power in her family — and for the secrets to stay quiet. If all this sounds a bit like ‘Empire’ in the church, you’d probably be right.

About the Author

I watch a lot of television, probably too much. But can you really watch too much TV? I've yet to find out. Anyway, I especially love TV when they give us positive portrayals of gays, something that has gotten better but we're still fighting for. I've written about gays in television for many years first at the much missed After Elton, then New Now Next and now at TV Source. It's kind of a passion of mine and I look forward to sharing it with you.
