Watch Episode One Of New Web Series About A Not-So Perfect Preacher ‘Te$timoney’

What’s this? A new web series that portrays black preachers
as less than perfect? And, I dare say, maybe even hypocritical? I’m there!

And I was just saying to someone the other day that there’s
maybe one too many black web series about relationships involving 20-something
year olds (yawn) and not enough dealing with other subjects; and
along comes this new web series called Te$timoney
produced by Michael Greyson, who
also directs, and Corey Scales.

Written by J.
Sanders Nelson
and Grayson, it deals with Rev. Calvin Shephard who finds himself in a conflict. As someone who was
formerly involved in the “street life”, Rev. Shephard  “is caught between two worlds and two
allegiances. He is a saved man, called by God to preach the gospel. He is a
loving father and husband. He is also running from a previous life that is
trying to pull him back”.
.

Starring Calvin Gabriel as Rev. Shephard and Nadine Marissa, the web series will
consist of 6 ten-minute episodes.

Here’s Episode One:
