OWN’s drama tells the story of Bishop James Greenleaf, a charming yet manipulative leader of a megachurch, and his wife Lady Mae Greenleaf, who loves money and power. It stars Emmy Award winners Keith David and Lynn Whitfield, and Oprah Winfrey will have a recurring role in the series. The series’ writer/producer is Craig Wright, who also worked on “Lost” and “Six Feet Under.”

When are they filming?

Filming is on Feb. 15 in Atlanta. Calvary Church scenes start at 10 a.m., and Triumph Ministries scenes start at 3 p.m. Extras in either scene should be prepared to work 12-hour days.

How much does it pay?
