Lifetime Orders Docuseries About Female Preachers

Lifetime's Preach

Lifetime is looking for an "Amen" with its new woman-preacher-focused docuseries. Preach follows four Ohio "Prophetesses" as they tend to their respective flocks, healing wounds both physical and psychic. More interesting, however, are the protégés chosen by each of the preachers: Some are lost souls who've found new life in their church, another a regular woman struggling with the same career-life balance her non-evangelical counterparts do. One is a Muslim woman who converted to Christianity, which ought to make for some good televised learning experiences.

Here are the four "Prophetesses":

Belinda Scott (Cleveland Heights, Ohio)

Karolina Wojtasik

A "Major Prophet" who counsels both the great and small.

Taketa Williams (Columbus, Ohio)

Karolina Wojtasik

Called by some the "Beyoncé of the Preaching World."

Linda Roark (Trenton, Ohio)

Karolina Wojtasik

The "Blue-Eyed Soul Sister."

Kelly Crews (Cleveland, Ohio)

Karolina Wojtasik

Belinda's former protégé.

Preach premieres Friday, June 5, at 10/9c on Lifetime.
