March 30th TV One presents a new film that takes an interesting look into the life of the Black church, “The Undershepherd.” Starring Isaiah Washington, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Clifton Powell and Louis Gossett, Jr. “The Undershepherd” chronicles an out of control pastor named Rev. Lawrence “LC” Case, played by Washington.
The film is produced by Russ Parr and he says the film was drawn from his own experience growing up in the church.
“I was really invested into the church and the church I was going to,” says Parr. “Then I started seeing things that didn’t make sense. My mom, who was a very religious woman, pulled me out of the church. She thought I was losing myself.”
