Oxygen Greenlights “Preachers Of Detroit” Starring Dorinda Clark-Cole & More
With the success of “Preachers of LA” in mind, Oxygen has set their sights on a new city: Detroit. The network recently announced that executives greenlit five new series, including “Preachers of Detroit.”
According to a recently distributed press release—which revealed that the spin-off includes female pastors as well this time around—the cast consists of “Bishop Charles Ellis, Pastor David Bullock, Evangelist Dorinda Clark-Cole, Pastor Don Shelby, Bishop Corletta Vaughn, Bishop-Elect Clarence Langston, and Pastor Tim Alden.”
“Oxygen is expanding the network’s popular franchise and heading to Motown for ‘Preachers of Detroit,’ set to premiere winter 2015,” the announcement reads. “The series will also focus on powerful themes of faith, family, and friendship as these seven men and women of the cloth share their lives, transformations and triumphs in and out of the pulpit in Detroit, Michigan.”
The network will also be debuting a new faith-based series titled “The Wilkersons,” which revolves around celebrity pastor Rich Wilkerson.
“Pastor Rich Wilkerson made international headlines when he married friends Kanye West and Kim Kardashian in a glamorous wedding in Florence, Italy,” the press release goes on to explain. “But even though he preaches to the A-list, his true passion is sharing his faith with the world and being part of a movement of young believers. A more entertaining way of spreading the gospel, this series not only walks with people through the struggles of their lives, but also sheds light on how Rich Wilkerson and his wife DawnCheré are committed to making church and faith fun as well as unexpected. With the entire family involved in the church, they are ready to share their innovative and thought-provoking ministering with both the believers and non-believers.”
