The film was actually completed back in 2009. We posted the trailer for the Rockmond Dunbar-directed Pastor Brown at the old site. Now, it is finally being released for Lifetime and premiering on the network this month on February 16th.

Sergio interviewed Dunbar a few days ago about his directing debut (read that interview HERE if you haven't). Pastor Brown stars Salli Richardson-Whitfied, who also co-produces), as an ex-stripper who honors her dying father's wish to take over as pastor of the family's church. I had the pleasure of interviewing the lovely Mrs. Richardson-Whitfield, who says this was a very challenging role for her due to her character's transformation. We should have that interview for you in the next couple of days.

Pastor Brown stars an ensemble of known actors including rising star Michael B. Jordan of Sundance's critically-acclaimed hit Fruitvale. Jordan plays her son in the film, which also stars Dunbar, Nicole Ari Parker, Michael Beach, Tasha Smith, Keith David, Tisha Campbell-Martin and Ernie Hudson.


To recap, here's the official synopsis:

When Jessica “Jesse” Brown returns home to honor her dying father’s final command to take over as pastor of the family church, she is forced to face critics who know of her sordid past and mend fences with the son and sister she abandoned years ago.

Watch the trailer below:
