Saints & Sinners: Bounce TV’s 1st Original Drama Touches on Both Sides of Humanity
In Bounce TV’s first-ever original drama series Saints & Sinners, acclaimed actress Vanessa Bell Calloway calls the scripted drama devilishly delicious!
The storyline in Saints & Sinners, centers around the pursuit of power, intertwined with deceit, greed, corruption and murder – all set against the backdrop of a large southern church, Greater Hope Baptist Church is the heartbeat of Cypress, GA, a large southern town outside Atlanta. With the return of a prodigal son and a shocking crime that rattles the core of the community, long-kept secrets, deceit, jealousy and compromising sexual affairs threaten to demolish the heart of the church and shatter the lives of those within it.
In a media teleconference on February 25, leading cast members Bell Calloway, who plays first Lady Ella and veteran actor Clifton Powell who plays Rex, shared that Saints & Sinners is a dynamic, entertaining show that deals with humanity, and in exposing both sides.
When Powell was asked to describe his character Rex, in three words, his answer was this: Sensitive, Sociopath and Manipulative. Now, here’s how Bell-Calloway described Lady Ella–Ambitious, Manipulative and Loving.
What do you think? Both characters sound saintly sinful to us. Only God and the devil can tell the difference between a saint and a sinner.
Chances are with this combination of remarkably talented actors, Saints & Sinners will undoubtedly have the show trending #mustseesundaytv.
