The Cast To Make Special Appearances In Atlanta and Dallas For Exclusive Q&A Sessions
NEW YORK, NY - August 5, 2014 - Oxygen Media and AMC Theatres are giving fans an advance screening of the season two premiere of the hit docu-series "Preachers of L.A." on Tuesday, August 12 at 7 PM exclusively at select AMC locations. A full week before the show premieres, screenings will be open to the public and held simultaneously at five AMC locations in Atlanta, Houston, Washington DC, Dallas and Tampa. The cast will make special appearances in Atlanta and Dallas for exclusive Q&A sessions with the audience. The highly anticipated series gives viewers a candid and revealing look at six boldly different, world-renowned mega-pastors in Southern California: Bishop Noel Jones, Minister Deitrick Haddon, Bishop Clarence McClendon, Pastor Jay Haizlip, Pastor Wayne Chaney, and Bishop Ron Gibson. Season Two premieres on Wednesday, August 20 at 10 PM ET/PT on Oxygen.
"Preachers of L.A." is full of self-discovery and change with growing families and ministries, incredible women of strength beside the preachers, and ever-changing relationships. On the season premiere, the preachers meet at Bishop Jones home to begin planning an outreach event that will positively impact the community of Los Angeles. Sparks fly when Pastor Haizlip confronts Deitrick about deceiving him at their wedding. Bishop Gibson clashes with Bishop Jones about Loretta's involvement in the event and their relationship status. Meanwhile, Loretta herself faces off with First Lady LaVette at Dominique's Sip N See. Will the preachers be able to put their differences aside and come together to plan this impactful event?
In addition, Oxygen will air four "Preachers of L.A." after-show specials beginning Wednesday, August 27 at 11 PM ET/PT. Hosted by network personality Susie Castillo, with a special appearance by relationship expert Paul Brunson, the cast will open up about love, relationships, faith, family, and compromise as they go in-depth on some of the most talked-about controversial topics of the season. Oxygen invites fans to ask the preachers questions via Twitter or Instagram video throughout season two and throughout the after-shows. Questions with hashtag #AskAPreacher will be pulled into a dedicated section on Oxygen.com (http://www.oxygen.com/shows/preachers-of-la), where fans may read submitted questions, submit their own, and watch videos of the preachers' answers. The preachers will answer questions during each after-show special to be published as exclusive digital content, and some answers may air on TV.
