The Nostalgia! Alexis Fields To Star In Church Comedy Pilot From Kerry Washington At ABC

March 12th 2019

Alexis Fields, a '90s fave, could be making her way back to television.

She's set to co-star in a church comedy pilot at ABC which is produced by Kerry Washington. It is inspired by the real-life couple pastors Touré Roberts and Sarah Jakes-Roberts. Fields joins series leads Leslie Odom Jr. and Kelly Jenrette.

The story "revolves around Omari and Hope, who are joint pastors at a young, hip, diverse church in Los Angeles. Through their services, online streams and books, they are experts at uniting people across different races, genders, orientations and opinions. But when it comes to uniting the people in their blended family, they are way out of their comfort zone, and as a result, the teachers often find themselves the pupils."

Fields, the daughter of actress Chip Fields and sister to actress Kim Fields, had major recurring roles on Kenan and Kel as Sharla, Moesha as Alicia and Sister, Sister as Diavian.

Saladin Patterson, the showrunner of TBS comedy The Last O.G. starring Tracy Morgan and Tiffany Haddish, will write the script and executive produce.
