IT'S TIME TO GET SAVED WITH LIFETIME(R)'S ALL-NEW DOCUSERIES, "PREACH" PREMIERING JUNE 5

Series Follows Four Female Preachers Ready to Pass on their Gift of Talking to God

LOS ANGELES, CA (May 5, 2015) - Prayers are about to be answered with Lifetime's all-new docuseries Preach (#Preach), premiering Friday, June 5th, at 10pm ET/PT. Produced by CORE Media Group, the show follows four powerful female leaders who believe God has given them the ability to heal the sick, see the future and rid people of their addictions. Known as "Prophetesses," these women speak as interpreters through whom the will of God is expressed. In order for their legacy to continue, they must enlist protégés and teach them how to carry on their gift. These "Queens of the Church" each have different styles and their own special way of delivering God's message, but all are united in their love of the Lord.

The Prophetesses and protégés featured are:

Belinda Scott (Cleveland Heights, Ohio) - Belinda considers herself a Major Prophetess who has given council to politicians and celebrities across the country. She has the ability to predict child birth and specializes in blessing the wombs of barren women. Belinda's protégé, Hadassah Elder, grew up Muslim and has never seen a woman in the pulpit so adjusting to new life as a Christian protégé will have its challenges.

Taketa Williams (Columbus, Ohio) - Taketa has been called the "Beyonce of the Preaching World" and touts a global following. She trains her protégé with a strict hand and isn't afraid to drop someone if they don't come up to her standards. Her protégé, Rebecca Hairston, is a single mother with three children.

Linda Roark (Trenton, Ohio) - Linda's specialty is delivering people from the street and bringing them to God. Known as the "Blue-Eyed Soul Sister," she has been told that she "looks white but she preaches black," and is admired in African-American churches for her ability to roar and get the room standing on their feet. Linda's protégé, Angel Pound, had a rough start in life. A former drug addict who has now turned her life around, she is still haunted by a past that threatens her chances of becoming a Prophetess.

Kelly Crews (Cleveland, Ohio) - Kelly is Belinda's former protégé who is now building a ministry of her own. The only single Prophetess in the group, she has trouble finding a man who can handle her gift. Kelly's protégé, Stacey Williams, is newly married and pregnant and struggles with making her prophetic training a priority.

Preach is produced by CORE Media Group with Jennifer O'Connell, Jenny Ramirez and Rasheed J. Daniel serving as Executive Producers, along with Eli Lehrer, Mary Donahue and Mariana Flynn executive producing for Lifetime. Lifetime has ordered six one-hour episodes of the series.
