Kirk Franklin readies BET Original | Kingdom Business with co-producers Devon Franklin, Holly Carter
A few months after producing the first-ever gospel Christmas film. Grammy Award-winning gospel artist Kirk Franklin has joined forces with Devon Franklin and Holly Carter on 'Kingdom Business'
The Kingdom comes first, but at what cost
SHORT SERIES SYNOPSIS:
Denita Jordan is the Queen of Gospel Music at First Kingdom Church and Kingdom Records in Atlanta. A superstar whose music has been heard around the world, she is determined to guard her family and its many secrets at all costs. Her husband Calvin Jordan may be the Bishop at First Kingdom, but Denita is the true leader, and she has little tolerance for insurrection among her family and employees (and ex-employees). Suddenly, there is a new powerhouse performer on the Atlanta gospel scene -- a young pole dancer, Rbel, whose talent and pedigree may bring her closer to God and gold than she ever imagined.
The series, executive-produced by gospel icon Kirk Franklin (who is set to recur as Deacon D’Wayne), will premiere all eight episodes on Thursday, May 19.
The series also stars Chaundre A. Hall-Broomfield (FBI, Luke Cage) as Taj Jordan and Michael Jai White (Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married, The Family Business) as Julius “Caesar” Jones. Guest stars include Tamar Braxton, Kiandra Richardson (Empire), Aspen Kennedy (Ruthless) and Tyler K. Whitley (Bigger, The Game).
The series was created by John J. Sakmar and Kerry Lenhart, who served as consulting producers on Reign, Make it or Break It and Psych. They will executive-produce alongside Kirk Franklin, DeVon Franklin, Holly Carter and Michael Van
