Oprah Winfrey Releases ‘Greenleaf’ Trailer

Oprah Winfrey is headed to the small screen this summer, and the first trailer for OWN’s Greenleaf is giving us a glimpse of what’s to come.

The hour-long series will follow a prodigal daughter named Grace, played by Merle Dandridge, who returns home to her father, a bishop of a megachurch.

While Keith David and Lynn Whitfield will portray her parents, Ms. Winfrey will play her manipulative aunt.

This is the media mogul’s first recurring role in more than 25 years, and she’s thrilled.

She tweeted, “This is what I’ve been working on…So excited for you all to finally see it!”

Check out the show when it airs June 21 at 10 P.M. EST, and peep the dramatic teaser below.
