The Christian community has joined the chat! There's a new faith based drama hitting the scenes in June and it is just as messy and faith filled as we'd hoped. Executive produced by Holly Carter, Kirk Franklin and DeVon Franklin, "Kingdom Business" is shaping up to be about the father's business and more!
So far, this is the cast is headlined by gospel singer Yolanda Adams (who plays "Denita Jordan"), Serayah (who plays "Rbel")as dueling vocalists. Series regulars are Michael Jai White as Julius “Caesar” Jones, a powerful producer and Denita’s former collaborator turned rival; Michael Beach as Calvin Jordan, Denita’s husband and Bishop of First Kingdom Church; and Chaundre A. Hall-Broomfield as Taj Jordan, the son of Calvin and Denita and the apple of his mother’s eye.
Recurring stars are Tamar Braxton as “Sasha,” La’Miya Good as “Essence,” Aspen Kennedy as “Zyan,” Kiandra Richardson as “C.J. Jordan-Walker,” Kajuana Shuford Marie as “Dani” and Sam Malone as “Dex.”
Here's the official show description:
The drama is centered around the reigning Queen of Gospel ‘Denita Jordan,’ and her ex-producer/songwriter/lover, ‘Caesar,’ who created her sound and launched her career. ‘Denita,’ who also runs an in-house record label and megachurch, is determined to guard her family and its many secrets at all costs to retain her place on the throne. Things seem to be unfolding in ‘Denita's’ favor until an unsuspecting young woman on the rise with a checkered past enters the scene. Destined and anointed to challenge gospel music conventions, ‘Rbel,’ also a former exotic dancer, will see if her new-found voice can carry her to the top of the gospel kingdom.

With the conclusion of "Greenleaf" and "Saints and Sinners" this show is definitely going to fill the gap for those who have been missing sanctified drama. The eight episode series will premiere on Bet Plus on May 19th.
