Undershepherd

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, 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 in the next day or two, in which he discusses his struggles in getting the film in theaters). 

In the meantime, TV One has released more clips from the film, which are embedded below, for you to get a glimpse at what to expect.

The film's 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 RuckerLouis Gossett Jr., Bill CobbsKeith DavidMalinda WilliamsVanessa Bell CallowayRobinne LeeClifton PowellElise Neal, and others.

Here are the 4 clips:
