Saints and Sinners Vanessa Bell Calloway

Season two brings viewers back to Cypress, Georgia, the sleepy southern town outside Atlanta which has been rocked by the murders of a beloved pastor and the town’s Mayor. Death’s shadow continues to loom over the town’s epicenter, Greater Hope Baptist Church, as a dead body is discovered on its grounds, bringing up the church’s sordid past along with it. As concealed secrets claw their way to the surface, new alliances are formed and deceit, jealousy and compromising sexual affairs threaten to shatter lives and demolish the heart of the church and the town forever. As everyone’s dark past comes to light, the difference between being a saint or a sinner becomes more distorted than ever.

Season two cast includes:

  • Vanessa Bell Calloway (Shameless, Coming to America) as Lady Ella, the secretive beauty queen with a business mind who takes over as Mayor – and takes her sins to a whole new level.
  • Christian Keyes (Mistresses, Let’s Stay Together) returns as Levi, a Cypress prodigal son and former Wall Streeter now running Greater Hope after the Pastor’s murder.
  • Keith Robinson (Dreamgirls, This Christmas) portrays Miles Calloway, the former minister of music at Greater Hope and one-time R&B star whose cheating ways may destroy two families.
  • Clifton Powell (Ray, Murder in the First) is Rex Fisher, the ruthless local loan shark who found himself double-crossed and put behind bars in season one.
  • J.D. Williams (The Night Of, The Wire) as Jabari, Levi’s cousin who also worked for Rex – until a stunning power play put him on top.
  • Jasmine Burke (The Vampire Diaries, Army Wives) is Lady Ella’s daughter, Dr. Christie Johnson, whose insurance scam at her medical clinic is threatened to be exposed.
  • Demetria McKinney (House of Payne, House Wives of Atlanta) returns as Miles’s wife Tamara, who is fighting to save her marriage in the aftermath of Miles’ infidelity as the couple prepares for the arrival of their first child.
  • Tray Chaney (The Wire, Masterminds) plays Kendrick Murphy, the illegitimate son of Lady Ella and Rex who was raised quietly out of the public spotlight but will play a big role as this season unfolds.
  • Karlie Redd (Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, Top Five) is Jabari’s wife Paige who has deep concerns about her husband breaking ranks with Rex.
  • Afemo Omilami (Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Forrest Gump) plays Detective St. Charles whose plate is full with all the crime in Cypress.

During its record-breaking first season, Saints & Sinners became Bounce’s most-watched programming in the network’s history. The series was so successful, Bounce renewed the show for year two ahead of the inaugural season’s thrilling finale.

Atlanta mayor to vandalizing protesters: ‘This is not a protest … this is chaos’

Published

on

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on Friday evening denounced vandalism in her city as “chaos” after demonstrations over the death of George Floyd while in in the custody of Minneapolis police turned violent.

“What I see happening on the streets of Atlanta is not Atlanta. This is not a protest. This is not in the spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr. This is chaos,” an impassioned Lance Bottoms said at a news conference.

“A protest has purpose. When Dr. King was assassinated, we didn’t do this to our city,” she said. “If you want change in America, go and register to vote. … That is the change we need in this country.”

The protests had started as peaceful Friday afternoon when crowds gathered in the city’s famed Centennial Park. But by 6 p.m. ET, protesters began moving toward the front of the CNN Center, where police had gathered. Over the next few hours, the demonstration swelled as SWAT officers were called in to help with crowd control.

Later, protesters could be seen damaging CNN Center in downtown Atlanta, which is sandwiched between Philips Arena and Centennial Park.

In response, Lance Bottoms, whose name has been floated as a possible vice presidential pick for presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, referenced CNN correspondent Omar Jimenez, who earlier Friday had been arrested — and then released about an hour later — while covering protests over Floyd’s death in Minneapolis.

“There was a black reporter who was arrested on camera this morning, who works for CNN. They are telling our stories, and you are disgracing their building,” she said. “We are no longer talking about the murder of an innocent man. We’re talking about how you’re burning police cars on the streets of Atlanta, Georgia.”

Anger over the death of Floyd spilled over into multiple cities across the country after the former officer seen in a video with his knee on Floyd’s neck was arrested and charged with murder.

Demonstrators funneled their anguish in cities like New York and Washington into chants, signs, and outbreaks of violence, smashing windows and setting vehicles ablaze.

“I am a mother to four black children in America, one of who is 18 years old,” Lance Bottoms said. “Yesterday, when I heard there were rumors about violent protests in Atlanta, I did what a mother would do, I called my son and I said, ‘Where are you?’ I said, ‘I cannot protect you, and black boys shouldn’t be out today.’ “

“So you’re not going to out-concern me and out-care about where we are in America,” she added.

In Minneapolis, Minnesota, George Floyd, an unarmed black man, died after he was pinned down by police officer Derek Chauvin. The video of the handcuffed man dying while Chauvin knelt on his neck sparked a fresh furor in the US over police treatment of African Americans. The video shared online showed Floyd pleading that he couldn’t breathe. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey fired four police officers following the death in custody of George Floyd. Chauvin has been charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter. Demonstrations are being held across the US demanding justice for Floyd.

BREAKING: Cobb DA Joyette Holmes Named Prosecutor In Ahmaud Arbery Case

Published

Georgia’s attorney general will appoint a new prosecutor in the Ahmaud Arbery case.

Attorney General Chris Carr will name Cobb District Attorney Joyette Holmes to take over the case, Belcher learned.

Belcher spoke to Holmes, who did not deny it but instead just referred him to the current special prosecutor, Thomas Durden.

The official announcement is expected later today, Belcher said.

Ahmaud Arbery, 25, was killed by a father and son as he jogged through their Glynn County neighborhood back in February. A video shot on a cellphone showed the confrontation between Arbery and the McMichaels after they confronted him with guns. It took 74 days for the McMichaels to be arrested and charged for Arbery’s death.


Gregory McMichael, 64, and Travis McMichael, 34

The McMichaels say that they suspected Arbery had broken into a home nearby that is under construction. Authorities said the McMichaels, thinking he was a burglary suspect, pursued him.

Arbery was shot and killed moments later.
