Lifetime has released the first trailer for Seven Deadly Sins, the cable network’s upcoming film series from TD Jakes Enterprises and Big Dreams Entertainment.
The two movies are based on the “Seven Deadly Sins” anthology books from Victoria Christopher Murray.
Up first is Lust: A Seven Deadly Sins Story. The film centers on a morality tale that explores the power and pitfalls of lust.
Here’s how Lifetime describes the film: “Tiffanie Cooper (Keri Hilson) is about to have the wedding of her dreams to her soul mate, the dashing Damon King (Tobias Truvillion), founder of King Enterprises. But when Damon’s old friend Trey Taylor (Durrell ‘Tank’ Babbs) arrives, fresh from prison to step in as Damon’s best man, Tiffanie’s whole world gets rocked. Sexy and mysterious, Trey triggers a passion in Tiffanie that she never expected, and suddenly the life she’s always planned with Damon is uncertain.”
T.D. Jakes, Derrick Williams, Leslie Greif and Shaun Robinson serve as executive producers and Star Victoria directs from a script written by Sonay Hoffman. The movie premieres Saturday, April 10 at 8pm/7c on Lifetime.
The second film is titled Envy: A Seven Deadly Sins Story and will debut a week later. The drama stars Serayah, Rose Rollins, Kandi Burruss, Donovan Christie Jr., Gregory Alan Williams, Da Brat, DC Young Fly, Clifton Powell and Hosea Chanchez.
Per Lifetime, “Gabrielle Flores (Rose Rollins) has it all — a devoted husband, a beautiful daughter, and one of the best PR firms in the country. When Gabrielle’s father suddenly reveals she has a half-sister, Keisha (Serayah), as a result of a brief affair, only-child Gabrielle is delighted to welcome her into her life. But Keisha, who grew up with nothing, wants more than a sisterly bond from Gabrielle—she wants her life, and is willing to do whatever it takes to get it.”
T.D. Jakes, Derrick Williams, Leslie Greif and Shaun Robinson serve as executive producers, and Damon Lee directs from a script written by Nneka Gerstle. It premieres on Saturday, April 17 at 8pm/7c
