ABC to launch T.V series inspired by Pastors Toure Roberts and Sarah Jakes-Roberts.


Kerry Washington and Leslie Odom Jr. are headed for ABC.

The Hamilton Tony winner is set to star in an ABC church comedy from executive producer Kerry Washington and inspired by real-life couple and pastors Toure Roberts and Sarah Jakes-Roberts.

The comedy is yet to be titled, and is in development but landed at ABC with a sizable put-pilot commitment. The show revolves around Leslie and Hope, who are joint pastors at a young, hip, diverse church in Los Angeles. Through their services, online streams and books, they are experts at uniting people across different races, genders, orientations and opinions. But when it comes to uniting the people in their blended family, they are way out of their comfort zone and as a result, the teachers often find themselves the pupils.
