          On the first season finale, "What Are You Doing Here?," Deacon Sykes is not sold on the idea of Lady Mae preaching at Calvary's Women's Day. Meanwhile, Basie Skanks wants Jacob to run Triumph's new community center that will be built very near Calvary. Finally, Lady Mae confronts her sister, Mavis.

          Season one of the new original drama series “Greenleaf” has taken viewers into the unscrupulous world of the Greenleaf family and their sprawling Memphis megachurch, where scandalous secrets and lies are as numerous as the faithful.  Like so many megachurches in America, Greenleaf World Ministries is more than just a house of worship. It’s a home. It’s the center of the community for the thousands of predominantly African-American members who attend services there. 

          But beneath its steeple lies a den of iniquity -- greed, adultery, sibling rivalry and conflicting values -- a multigenerational matrix of deception that involves the church’s founding family, but also extends to the congregation and prominent members of the Memphis community and beyond. Yet, amidst all of the mayhem and deception, the power of something greater persists, calling everyone to conscience for their sins.  

          The ensemble features Keith David, Lynn Whitfield, Merle Dandridge, Lamman Rucker, Deborah Joy Winans, Tye White, Kim Hawthorne and Desiree Ross. Oprah Winfrey appears in the series in a recurring role.
