Brother White is a heartwarming fish-out-of-water comedy about the power of faith and forgiveness. Packed with soulful sounds of gospel music, a guest starring performance by Grammy award-winning artist Bebe Winans and a choir that raises the roof with messages of strength, support and praise, Brother White tells the story of an associate pastor at a rich mega church in Southern California who gets assigned to a small community church in an inner-city neighborhood in Atlanta.
“Comedy is one of the most uplifting forms of entertainment,” said Brad Siegel, vice chairman, GMC. “Brother White is a unique blend of heart and humor and represents the type of family programming GMC is committed to delivering as part of the network’s world premiere programming slate.”
James White (David A.R. White) is one of dozens of associate pastors at a successful mega church under the tutelage of television evangelist Johnny Kingman (Ray Wise). He has always longed to have his own church and jumps at the opportunity to become pastor of the impoverished Divine Faith Apostolic Church in Atlanta. His wife Lily White (Logan White) and two children, Emma (Anna Margaret) and Cooper (Gibson Sjobeck) are not enthusiastic about his new assignment. Neither is the congregation at the Divine Faith Apostolic Church, but with the help of Deacon Hill (Reginald VelJohnson), they will have to pull together to save the church from a corrupt banker who is anxious to foreclose. When Pastor White delivers the news to former first lady of the church, Veena (Jackée), that he can deliver Bebe Winans to perform at the church fundraiser, trust and a new faith begin to transform between the White family and the congregation.
Brother White is a Pure Flix Entertainment production in association with GMC. Brian Herzlinger (My Date with Drew) is the director. Sean Paul Murphy, Matt Richards and Tommy Blaze wrote the screenplay. The film is produced by Anna Zielinski, David A.R. White, Russell Wolfe, Michael Scott and Elizabeth Travis. Brad Siegel and Suzette Schafer are executive producers.
