Blair Underwood, Pam Grier, Sharon Leal, and Nicole Beharie Join Cast of ‘On The Seventh Day’
From the producer of “Jumping The Broom”, Bishop TD Jakes brings us another spiritual film with a solid cast. On the Seventh Day is said to be the follow up of his critically acclaimed 2004 film “Woman Thou Art Loosed,” starring Kimberly Elise as an abused and troubled woman.
This independent film takes its audience on a seven day journey inside the souls and secrets of a husband and wife, Kari and David Ames as they search for redemption, truth and faith while on a race to find their missing daughter. The film uses the eerie, yet peaceful and beautiful scenery of Louisiana’s bayous and the cities unique culture to depict a story that everyone can relate to, a story of a couples transformation, strength and conviction.
The multi award winning cast includes Blair Underwood (LA Law, Law and Order SVU) as David Ames, Sharon Leal (Why Did I Get Married?, Why Did I Get Married Too?) as Kari Ames, Nicole Beharie (American Violet, Sins of the Mother) as Beth Hutchins and starring the legendary, Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Pam Grier (Jackie Brown, Happily Ever After: Fairy Tales for Ever Child) as Detective Barrick.
The film is scheduled to shoot for four weeks in New Orleans, ending Aug 6. Casting opportunities for local talent will be available.
