Take ‘Em To Church: Check Out The Trailer For The Drama-Filled New Lifetime Movie, “Pastor Brown”

February 5, 2013  |  

While Betty & Coretta might not have had people seeing Emmy nominations in the future of the stars, especially not Mary J. Blige (if you ask Betty Shabazz’s daughter, Ilyasah), there are two more Lifetime movies on the way to help you celebrate Black History Month. Toni Braxton’s Twist of Faith is ready to premiere this weekend, and the trailer for Pastor Brown has just been released, with that movie set to premiere on the 16th.

Directed by actor Rockmond Dunbar, the movie stars Salli Richardson-Whitfield, who is playing the daughter of a dying pastor, whose last wish is for his daughter to return to the church and take over his place in the pulpit. Unfortunately, Whitfield’s character has a less than stellar past (including stripping and leaving behind a son), which makes her return home anything but smooth. Especially when that drama comes to light. She has to try and rebuild a relationship with her sister, played by Nicole Ari Parker, and her son, who is now almost a grown up, played by Michael B. Jordan, and find a way to lead a church who doubts her. Ooooh the drama. Check out the trailer for the film below and let us know if you’ll be tuning in to the Lifetime movie on February 16.

  • Anytime a cast of black actors and actress get picked up it is a good thing. It won’t hurt you to view it, you just might like it. We are not always represented in hollywood well so support the movies when they come out. This is why Lifetime picked it up to do something different but if we don’t watch this is how we never see our people faces on TV – So WATCH Everyone! Comment afterwards.

    Beautiful poster but not sure movie will be worth tuning into!!!

  • HoneyDipp

    Whoa! I’m digging that cast. I’ll tune in… Off topic, but I still can’t believe they put Mary J Blige alongside theeee Angela Basset. Really Lifetime???

  • Yvette

    I like Rockmond Dunbar (no matter what he does, he will always be Kenny from the series Soul Food that was on Showtime). I’m going to watch for sure!

  • Jaiah Jaxon

    This movie was filmed in 2009 and they’ve been shopping it around since then. Glad to see it was picked up.

  • IAJS

    Salli Richardson is 45 and looking like that?! Amazing

  • Im a bit nervous about some of the acting from a few of the cast mates, mainly Sally Richardson but I will check it out.

  • I’m in!

  • SheBe

    Eh. I will watch. I haven’t watched Lifetime in years because the movies are all the same thing. I tried with Ratchet Roses, I mean Steel Magnolias, but was severely disappointed. I don’t think I missed anything with Corretta and Betty either.

    • You didn’t miss anything trust…lol

      • Dichu eba realy lub mehSteebie

        The best part of Coretta and Betty was Malcolm X’s little daughter crying when he got shot. She was very convincing
