There's a new reality series about to debut on cable. Here's a write-up and the new trailer...
NEW YORK, NY – August 14, 2013 - Oxygen Media goes behind the pulpit in an authentic new docu-series, "Preachers of L.A." premiering on Wednesday, October 9 at 10 PM ET/PT. From Lemuel Plummer, the executive producer of “Vindicated” and producer of “The Sheards,” and Holly Carter, executive producer of “106 & Gospel” and executive producer of “The Sheards,” comes a series that gives viewers a candid and revealing look at six boldly different, world-renowned mega-pastors in Southern California— Bishop Noel Jones, Minister Deitrick Haddon, Bishop Clarence McClendon, Pastor Jay Haizlip, Pastor Wayne Chaney and Bishop Ron Gibson.
These men of God will share diverse aspects of their dynamic lives, from their work in the community and with their parishioners to the very large and captivating lives they lead away from the pulpit. While “Preachers of L.A.” documents these pastors’ lifestyles, the series also focuses on the daily struggles and triumphs they face as men, husbands, fathers, brothers and friends. Viewers will also get to know the strong women who stand behind these church leaders, and often work just as hard to balance their lives in the spotlight with their commitment to family. “As pastors’ kids ourselves who have spent most of our lives in and around the faith community, we recognize and appreciate the unique role that pastors play in the lives of their congregations, as well as the pressures that are regularly placed on them and their families,” said executive producers Lemuel Plummer and Holly Carter. “We think the fascinating personal stories of these powerful, dynamic and very public men of God are truly compelling and deserve to be told, and are very pleased to be working with Oxygen to do so.”
Oxygen and the “Preachers of L.A.,” in conjunction with 360i, the network’s social agency of record, are bringing church to Twitter on Tuesday, September 3. The preachers will deliver a digital sermon, sharing anecdotes, quotables, advice, and scripture with fans of the show. The Twitter Sermon will focus on the preachers’ religious and personal lives. Fans can follow @PreachersofLA for more info on the Twitter Sermon. Beginning on Tuesday, September 10, fans of the series can access exclusive content available on Video On Demand including bonus footage and interviews with the cast.
