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.
