After partnering with Bishop T.D. Jakes for the films Faith Under Fire and I Am Somebody’s Child, Lifetime is reteaming with him on two more movies– Lust: A Deadly Sins Saga (wt) and Envy: A Deadly Sins Saga (wt). They are based on two books from the Seven Deadly Sins anthology by Victoria Christopher Murray.
The first film Lust: A Deadly Sins Saga (wt) premieres on Saturday, April 17 at 8 p.m. and stars Keri Hilson, Tobias Truvillion and Durrell ‘Tank’ Babbs. Envy: A Deadly Sins Saga (wt) premieres on Saturday, April 24 at 8 p.m. and stars Serayah, Rose Rollins and Kandi Burruss (Real Housewives of Atlanta). Bishop T.D. Jakes and Derrick Williams executive produce both films with Shaun Robinson.
The description of the first film: Tiffanie Cooper (Keri Hilson) is about to have the wedding of her dreams to her soul mate, the dashing Damon King (Tobias Truvillion), founder of King Enterprises. But when Damon’s old friend Trey Taylor (Durrell ‘Tank’ Babbs) arrives, fresh from prison to step in as Damon’s best man, Tiffanie’s whole world gets rocked. Sexy and mysterious, Trey triggers a passion in Tiffanie that she never expected, and suddenly the life she’s always planned with Damon is uncertain. But Trey still carries wounds from his history with Damon, and his intentions toward both Tiffanie and Damon are not to be trusted. The film also stars Ms. Juicy, LeToya Luckett, and Clifton Powell. Star Victoria directs from a script written by Sonay Hoffman.
The description of the second film: Gabrielle Flores (Rose Rollins) has it all – a devoted husband, a beautiful daughter, and one of the best PR firms in the country. When Gabrielle’s father suddenly reveals she has a half-sister, Keisha (Serayah), as a result of a brief affair, only-child Gabrielle is delighted to welcome her into her life. But Keisha, who grew up with nothing, wants more than a sisterly bond from Gabrielle—she wants her life, and is willing to do whatever it takes to get it. The film also stars Kandi Burruss, Donovan Christie Jr., Gregory Alan Williams, Da Brat, DC Young Fly, Clifton Powell and Hosea Chanchez. Damon Lee directs from a script written by Nneka Gerstle.
