BET+ Gives Series Order to Drama 'Kingdom Business' Created by John Sakmar and Kerry Lenhart

BET+ has today given a series order to the original drama series Kingdom Business created by John Sakmar and Kerry Lenhart. The first season will produce 8 episodes.

The drama centers around the reigning Queen of Gospel Denita Jordan and her ex-producer/songwriter/lover Caesar, who created her sound and launched her career. Denita, who also runs an in-house record label and megachurch, is determined to guard her family and its many secrets at all costs to retain her place on the throne. Things seem to be unfolding in Denita's favor until an unsuspecting young woman on the rise with a checkered past enters the scene. Destined and anointed to challenge gospel music conventions, former exotic dancer Rbel will see if her newfound voice can carry her to the top of the gospel kingdom.

Sakmar and Lenhart will executive produce with DeVon Franklin, Holly Carter, Kirk Franklin and Michael Van Dyck. Franklin Entertainment, Relevé Entertainment, Inspired Entertainment and DAELight will produce.
