We loved her as the fixer ‘Olivia Pope’ on “Scandal” but now Kerry Washington is behind the scenes directing episodes of “Insecure” and more. Now the award winning actress is set to produce a church comedy for ABC.
The show is inspired by the real-life couple pastors Tourè Robers and his wife, the daughter of Bishop T.D. Jakes, Sarah Jakes-Roberts.
Reports say the story, “revolves around Omari and Hope, who are joint pastors at a young, hip, diverse church in Los Angeles. Through their services, online streams and books, they are experts at uniting people across different races, genders, orientations and opinions. But when it comes to uniting the people in their blended family, they are way out of their comfort zone, and as a result, the teachers often find themselves the pupils.”
Leslie Odom Jr. and Kelly Jenrette are already the lead characters. Also Alexis Fields, known for her roles in a lot of 90’s sitcoms like “Sister, Sister” and “Moesha” will join the series.
Fields is the little sister of actress Kim Fields who played Tootie on "The Facts of Life" and Regine on "Living Single" and she is the daughter of actress, Chip Fields who played Penny's mom on "Good Times."
