Regina King had the unenviable task of telling Oprah Winfrey what to do on the set of Greenleaf, but both of them were excited for the experience.
King won an Emmy last year as an actress in American Crime, and fans might also remember her from Ray and Enemy of the State. All of her experience in front of the camera proved helpful in remaining poised behind the camera while directing Greenleaf.
The upcoming series centers on disillusioned preacher Grace Greenleaf (Merle Dandridge), who has returned home to her estranged family after 20 years. As she re-enters the world of Calvary Fellowship World Ministries, the Memphis megachurch run by her powerful parents: Bishop James Greenleaf (Keith David) and Lady Mae Greenleaf (Lynn Whitfield), it becomes evident that things are not as virtuous as they seem and that the family's outward display of faith hides sin and misdeeds.
