As previously announced, Russ Parr's contentious drama The Undershepherd, will make its broadcast TV premiere on TV One on Saturday, March 30th at 8pm/ET, and will screen again on Sunday, March 31, at 5:30pm/ET.

This will be the very first time most of you will get a chance to see it actually, since it screened at only 4 or 5 film festivals last year through this year, and it never received a theatrical release (I'll be posting my interview with Russ next week, leading up to the film's broadcast TV premiere, in which he discusses his struggles in getting the film in theaters).

In the meantime, TV One has released a couple of clips from the film, for you to get a glimpse at what to expect, so check them both out below.

Its synopsis reads:

When the head preacher of his church plans his retirement, mild-mannered LC (Isaiah Washington) is seduced by his access to the power and money earned through his ministry, and slowly transforms into a ruthless business man.

Lead by a captivating performance by Isaiah Washington, the film is more of a character study of the man he plays, and is unlike the expected comedy that Russ may be more known for (although it certainly has some comedic elements in it.

Joining Isaiah Washington in the ensemble cast are Lamman Rucker, Louis Gossett Jr., Bill Cobbs, Keith David, Malinda Williams, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Robinne Lee, Clifton Powell, Elise Neal, and others.
