ATLANTA (Feb. 29, 2016) – On Sunday, March 6, the evolution of emerging broadcast networks takes a significant step forward when Bounce TV world premieres its first-ever original drama series Saints & Sinners at 9:00 p.m. ET.
In an unprecedented move, Bounce TV is offering the HD series premiere episode of Saints & Sinners to network affiliates for airing on their primary channel between March 7-13.
“This special play of Saints & Sinners will allow our affiliates to promote their carriage of Bounce and encourage sampling of the series, both of which will enhance their ad sales revenue opportunities locally,” commented Bounce TV Senior Vice President of Affiliate Relations Tracy Underwood.
Saints & Sinners centers around the pursuit of power, intertwined with greed, deception, corruption and murder – all set against the backdrop of a large southern church. Greater Hope Baptist Church is the heartbeat of Cypress, GA, a large southern town outside Atlanta. As times changed and Cypress grew, so did Greater Hope’s influence. With the return of a prodigal son and a shocking crime that rattles the core of the community, long-kept secrets, deceit, jealousy and compromising sexual affairs threaten to demolish the heart of the church and shatter the lives of those within it.
The Saints & Sinners cast includes: Vanessa Bell Calloway (Shameless, Coming to America); Christian Keyes (Mistresses, Let’s Stay Together), Keith Robinson (Dreamgirls, This Christmas), Clifton Powell (Ray, Murder in the First) Gloria Reuben (Mr. Robot, ER), J.D. Williams (The Wire, The Good Wife), Jasmine Burke (The Vampire Diaries, Army Wives), Afemo Omilami (Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Forrest Gump) and Richard Lawson (Numb3rs, Wag the Dog).
Bounce TV is the only emerging broadcast network producing original scripted series. The network’s three originally-produced sitcoms Mann & Wife (First Season), In The Cut (First Season) and Family Time (Third Season) all set network records for viewership in 2015.
Bounce TV is the fastest-growing African-American (AA) network on television and airs on the broadcast signals of local television stations and corresponding cable carriage. The network features a programming mix of original and off-network series, theatrical motion pictures, specials, live sports and more. Bounce TV has grown to be available in more than 93.5 million homes across the United States and 93% of all African American television homes, including all of the top AA television markets. Among the founders of Bounce TV are iconic American figures Martin Luther King, III and Ambassador Andrew Young.
