(from Lifetime's press release, March 2019) From executive producers and Grammy Award winners Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige and Missy Elliott, comes the authorized musical tale of the incomparable gospel singers, The Clark Sisters. The Clark Sisters: The First Ladies of Gospel recounts the story of the highest selling female gospel group in history and of their trailblazing mother, Mattie Moss Clark (Aunjanue Ellis). Credited with bringing Gospel music to the mainstream, the five Clark sisters (Christina Bell as "Twinkie," Kierra Sheard as "Karen," Sheléa Frazier as "Dorinda," Raven Goodwin as "Denise," Angela Birchett as "Jacky") overcame humble beginnings in Detroit, enduring abuse, loss, rejection, betrayal, and sibling rivalries to achieve international fame as icons of the Gospel music industry. Christine Swanson (Chicago P.D.) directs based on a script written by Sylvia L Jones. Executive producers include Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, Missy Elliott and Loretha Jones. Holly Carter also executive produces for Revele Entertainment while Shakim Compere executive produces for Flavor Unit.
