Atlanta-based Bounce TV’s biggest show “Saints and Sinners” has been cleared for a fourth season.
The drama, which is like a soapier version of OWN’s “Greenleaf,” is set in Georgia and features a family that runs a mega-church. It stars Vanessa Bell Calloway, Keith Robinson and Christian Keyes, among others. A raft of Atlanta-based actors are on the cast as well including Demetria McKinney and Jasmine Burke. Clifton Powell moved to Atlanta in part because of the show.
Season three aired in the spring of 2018 for eight episodes. Its overnight ratings are around 1 million viewers.
The show’s production company Swirl is based in Atlanta.
Bounce is the only network of its kind, as part of an expanded digital broadcast world, that airs original programming. It superserves the African-American community.
The production company has also sold the streaming rights to the show to Hulu. The first three seasons will be available before season four begins.
