Bounce TV Announces ‘Saints & Sinners’

Corruption at a Southern Church is the Focus

Bounce TV, designed for African-American audiences, is expanding into hour-long drama with “Saints & Sinners,” which will center around the pursuit of power, intertwined with deceit, greed, corruption and murder – all set against the backdrop of a large southern church. The scoop: Greater Hope Baptist Church is the heartbeat of Cypress, GA a southern town outside Atlanta which evolved into a city over the years. The church began as a 10-member congregation when the Civil Rights Movement was at its height and being young, black and alone at night was a hazard of circumstance. As times changed, the congregation grew and so did its influence in Cypress. When a violent murder rocks the community, the church that holds the secrets of the entire town is at risk of imploding.

The cast of Saints & Sinners” includes Vanessa Bell Calloway (“Shameless”), Clifton Powell (“Ray”), Gloria Reuben (“ER”), Keith Robinson (“Dreamgirls”), Christian Keyes (“Mistresses”) and Richard Lawson (“Wag the Dog”). “Saints & Sinners” is being produced in partnership with Swirl Film’s Eric Tomosunas (Undershepard, 35 and Ticking).
