Here’s the latest from the crossroads of faith, media & culture: 03/23/22

Beyond Urkel. Best known for his childhood role as Steve Urkel in the classic nineties TGIG sitcom Family Matters, Jaleel White, IMHO, remains a gifted and underrated comic actor. This week you can catch him putting that talent to use when the faith-themed comedy The Greatest Inheritance debuts on digital and VOD on Friday (3/25). 
Co-starring Mena Suvari (American Pie) the movie follows four estranged siblings as they embark on the scavenger hunt to find  of a lifetime their mother’s will which is hidden somewhere on her property. The person who finds the will inherits the estate. Through many twists and turns, plus their mom’s unexpected “special rules,” they are reminded of the hope that guided their mother’s life – and what their greatest inheritance really is. White plays Mr. Shepard, the catalyst for their quest.

Writer/producer Alexandra Boylan says “The Greatest Inheritance is a film that everyone needs to see…It is so important to be reminded of the final – just to not use great and greatest SO much – inheritance we will all receive in the Kingdom of Heaven. It puts everything else we experience on a daily basis into perspective.”

More Deadly Sins. On the heels of last year’s popular Lust and Envy movies which were seen by over 9.4 million viewers in their airings, Lifetime has set the premiere dates for its next two Seven Deadly Sins  movies. Like the first two films, Wrath and Greed are executive produced Bishop T.D. Jakes, along with Derrick Williams and Shaun Robinson and based on the series of books by Victoria Christopher Murray. Synopses follow the official promos below.

 

Wrath: A Seven Deadly Sins Story (airing Saturday, April 16 @ 8:00 PM ET) tells the story of single lawyer Chastity Jeffries (Michelle Williams) who meets Xavier Collins (Antonio Cupo), a man who seems to be everything she is looking for in a partner—handsome, smart and a lawyer as well.  As his affection turns to obsession, Chastity realizes that she has been swept up by Xavier’s passion and abandoned her principles. When Xavier’s jealousy and wrath lead to suspicious actions and dangerous threats, Chastity confides in her mother Sarah (Tina Knowles-Lawson) and turns to her former childhood boyfriend Roger Thompkins (Romeo Miller). But, in the end, Chastity will have to fight to save herself.


Greed: A Seven Deadly Sins Story
(airing Saturday, April 23 @ 8:00 PM ET)
is about Zuri Maxwell (Monique Coleman), an interior decorator who has it all – a career she adores, a loving family and friends, and a good man in her life (Nathan Witte) – until greed threatens to destroy everything. (Don’t you hate when that happens?)
