Oxygen is going behind the pulpit in the authentic new docu-series, “Preachers of L.A,” premiering this October.
Slated to air Wednesday nights at 10 p.m., beginning October 9, “Preachers of L.A.” is produced by Lemuel Plummer (“The Sheards,” “Vindicated”) and Holly Carter (“106 & Gospel,” “The Sheards”) and is expected to give viewers a candid and revealing look at six boldly different, world-renowned mega-pastors in Southern California— Bishop Noel Jones, Minister Deitrick Haddon, Bishop Clarence McClendon, Pastor Jay Haizlip, Pastor Wayne Chaney and Bishop Ron Gibson.
“These men of God will share diverse aspects of their dynamic lives, from their work in the community and with their parishioners to the very large and captivating lives they lead away from the pulpit. While “Preachers of L.A.” documents these pastors’ lifestyles, the series also focuses on the daily struggles and triumphs they face as men, husbands, fathers, brothers and friends. Viewers will also get to know the strong women who stand behind these church leaders, and often work just as hard to balance their lives in the spotlight with their commitment to family,” reports Oxygen.
“As pastors’ kids ourselves who have spent most of our lives in and around the faith community, we recognize and appreciate the unique role that pastors play in the lives of their congregations, as well as the pressures that are regularly placed on them and their families,” said executive producers Lemuel Plummer and Holly Carter. “We think the fascinating personal stories of these powerful, dynamic and very public men of God are truly compelling and deserve to be told, and are very pleased to be working with Oxygen to do so.”
“Preachers of L.A.” premieres Wednesday, October 9 at 10 PM ET/PT on Oxygen.
