In the newly released trailer for Lifetime’s Pride: A Seven Deadly Sins Story, Grammy-winning singer Erica Campbell warns of the dangers of too much pride.
“Don’t let pride destroy what destiny has ordained,” she says.
Campbell plays “Pastor Trey” in the film. She’s joined in the cast by fellow Grammy winner Stephanie Mills as bakery owner and reality TV star “Birdie Moore.”
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.
The cast also includes Thomas “Nephew Tommy” Miles (Ready to Love), Keeya King (Yellowjackets), Lucia Walters (Virgin River), and Jaime M. Callica (Ruthless).
According to the official description: “To salvage her legacy, Birdie must let go of the pride that estranged her from her daughter. Birdie’s pride also prevents her from seeing that her son Gabe Moore (Thomas Miles) is actually a thieving opportunist and that her granddaughter Ella Boudreaux (Keeya King) is just a lost twenty-something trying to build up her life after some missteps.”
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 Pride.
The previous movies — Lust, Envy, Wrath and Greed — attracted close to 7 million total viewers in 2022.
