Sean Dominic and Roshon Fegan
OWN's hit drama series "Greenleaf" was the most watched new cable show of the summer, according to the network, and was also the #1 original cable series on Wednesday nights for women. The series delivered record numbers with its season finale (8/31) with 2.4 million viewers and a 1.84 women 25-54 rating, making it the network's most watched and highest rated Wednesday telecast in network history.
"Greenleaf" takes viewers into the unscrupulous world of the Greenleaf family and their sprawling Memphis megachurch, where scandalous secrets and lies are as numerous as the faithful. Born of the church, the Greenleaf family love and care for each other, but beneath the surface lies a den of iniquity -- greed, adultery, sibling rivalry and conflicting values -- that threatens to tear apart the very core of their faith that holds them together.
"Greenleaf" stars Merle Dandridge as Grace Greenleaf; Keith David as Bishop James Greenleaf; Lynn Whitfield as Lady Mae Greenleaf; Kim Hawthorne as Kerissa Greenleaf; Lamman Rucker as Jacob Greenleaf; Tye White as Kevin Satterlee; Deborah Joy Winans as Charity Greenleaf-Satterlee; Desiree Ross as Sophia; and Oprah Winfrey in a recurring role as Mavis McCready.
Greenlit for a second season to premiere during the summer of 2017, Sean Dominic and Roshon Fegan have both joined the season 2 cast. Dominic will play Martin Jabari Johnson, who is described as a handsome record producer and Charity’s (Deborah Joy Winans) preferred choice to produce her new album. And Fegan will recur as Isaiah Hambrick, a rising young Christian pop star who shakes up Sophia (Desiree Ross) and Zora’s (Lovie Simone) world.
Production on the second season is underway in Atlanta.
The series is executive produced by Craig Wright ("Lost," "Six Feet Under"), Oprah Winfrey ("Selma") and Clement Virgo ("The Book of Negroes").
"Greenleaf" is produced for OWN by Lionsgate in association with Harpo Films and Pine City.
