"eOne's versatility across all pillars of entertainment from music, film and television through development, production and distribution enables us to offer comprehensive multi-platform opportunities for our partners."

"I am very thrilled about this opportunity, to extend into television with the eOne family as well, with this series," said Williams. "Working together on my new gospel album and television series, I am excited to share with everyone a behind-the-scenes look at the inspiration and journey of recording for the album, performing, fun family times and other unforgettable experiences out together with my dear sisters."

MY SISTER'S KEEPER will follow the lives of Michelle and her sisters and the pressures of releasing a new solo album though eOne Music. The series will be produced and distributed by eOne Television worldwide in all media. Executive producers include Tara Long, Phil Thornton and Jeff Hevert on behalf of eOne as well as Michelle Williams and John Dee Hammond.

Light Records is a gospel industry powerhouse which has garnered consistent top-rated and #1 album debuts from a diverse slate of legendary and new artists, from the legendary Shirley Caesar to chart-topper James Fortune. Fueled by her strong faith, compassion and creative brilliance that have made her an indispensable force on stage and beloved entertainer, Williams is no stranger to a daring new journey with eOne Music and eOne Television as she juggles a new gospel record, new show, family, faith and other endeavors.
