Oprah Winfrey is heading back in front of the TV cameras to appear in a new church drama which will air on her OWN TV network, Philly.com reports. The Selma star has signed on for a recurring role in Greenleaf, according to TheWrap.com. The series, about church life in Memphis, Tennessee, will star Keith David and Lynn Whitfield. Winfrey will play Mavis McCready, the sister of Whitfield’s character. The TV mogul will also serve as an executive producer on the show.
(Editor’s note: I will be curious to see how they portray Christianity.)
