Things get heated in a preview clip for Lifetime’s Pride: A Seven Deadly Sins Story.

Grammy winner Stephanie Mills stars in the film as bakery owner and reality TV star “Birdie Moore.”

The video shows Birdie and her son Gabe (Thomas “Nephew Tommy” Miles) arguing about another family member getting half of Birdie’s business.

“She’s getting the half that would have belonged to your sister,” Birdie tells a furious Gabe.

“My sister is not here,” Gabe shoots back at his mother. “I am! I’m the one who put all the hustle in.”

The film is based on real events and follows Birdie as her world starts to crumble when her family’s secrets bubble to the surface. To salvage her legacy, she must let go of the pride that led to a rift with her daughter. Birdie’s pride also prevents her from seeing that Gabe is actually a thieving opportunist and her granddaughter Ella (Keeya King) is a lost twenty-something trying to rebuild her life.

Grammy-winning singer Erica Campbell plays “Pastor Trey” who warns the family of the dangers of too much pride. The cast also includes Lucia Walters (Virgin River) and Jaime M. Callica (Ruthless).

The film is the fifth installment in Lifetime’s Seven Deadly Sins franchise, all inspired by novels from author Victoria Christopher Murray, who is a consulting producer on this latest film.

The previous movies — Lust, Envy, Wrath and Greed — attracted close to 7 million total viewers in 2022.

The fifth installment is produced by Neshama Entertainment, T.D. Jakes Enterprises, DNA Media Group and RobinHood Productions in association with MarVista Entertainment.

Troy Scott directs from a script written by Felicia Brooker. Executive producers include T.D. Jakes, Derrick Williams, and Shaun Robinson along with Larry Grimaldi, Hannah Pillemer and Fernando Szew for MarVista Entertainment, and Arnie Zipursky and Suzanne Berger for Neshama.
