Kingdom Affairs arrives on BET +. Eight episodes have been ordered for the drama that will take viewers into the gospel music industry. Kerry Lenhart and JJ Sakmar will be the writers and executive producers of the series.
BET + revealed more information about the upcoming series in a press release.
“BET +, the first streaming service for the black community, gave the green light to the new musical drama KINGDOM AFFAIRS. The eight-part series explores the gospel music industry through the multiple lenses of family, faith, love, and the redemptive power of music in a way we’ve never seen before.
The drama centers on the reigning queen of gospel “Denita Jordan” and her ex-producer / songwriter / lover, “Caesar”, who created her sound and launched her career. “Denita,” who also runs an in-house record label and mega-church, is determined to protect her family and her many secrets at all costs to keep her place on the throne. Things seem to be going in “Denita’s” favor until an unsuspecting young woman on the rise with a checkered past comes into play. Destined and anointed to defy the conventions of gospel music, “Rbel”, also a former exotic dancer, will see if her new voice can carry her to the top of the gospel realm.
KINGDOM AFFAIRS is produced by Holly Carter (The Clark Sisters: The First Ladies of Gospel and Founder of Relevé Entertainment), DeVon Franklin (Miracles From Heaven and CEO of Franklin Entertainment), Kirk Franklin (multiple Grammy Award winner and CEO of Fo Yo Soul Entertainment ), who will also be the show’s executive music producer, and Michael Van Dyck (television veteran and literary agent and founder of Inspired Entertainment). The series is written and produced by duo Kerry Lenhart and JJ Sakmar (co-creators of the Mr. & Mrs. Smith and Medicine Ball series) and is produced by DAELight Media.
A premiere date and cast for this new series will be announced at a later date.
