PREMIERING SATURDAY, DECEMBER 10TH AND SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17TH AT 7 PM ET

ATLANTA, GA., November 28, 2011 - GMC, America's favorite channel for uplifting music and family entertainment, will present the premiere of its first original gospel play series "She's Still Not Our Sister." The four episode series, will premiere, exclusively on GMC at 7 and 8 p.m. ET on Saturday, December 10 with episodes 1 and 2 and conclude with episodes 3 and 4 at the same times on Saturday, December 17.

In this riveting four-part sequel to GMC's hit gospel play production "She's Not Our Sister," the saga of the Walker sisters continues as they learn that the millions they received after their father's death cannot buy happiness. Instead, the four women discover they have inherited an entirely new set of challenges, including career setbacks, romantic disappointments, charming gold-diggers and self-destructive tendencies.

"As our first gospel play series, 'She's Still Not Our Sister' marks an exciting milestone for GMC," said Leslie Chesloff, executive vice president of programming, GMC. "'She's Not Our Sister,' which premiered in June, was wildly popular with viewers. We are thrilled to present a four-part series that allows our audience to continue the journey with these compelling characters as they encounter new romances, unexpected challenges and startling revelations."

After reconciling with their long-lost half-sister Allison (Jazsmin Lewis) following the death of their estranged father, Vivian (Kellita Smith), Cynthia (Drew Sidora) and Deniece Walker (Azur De) find their lives have become even more complicated. When Allison develops a serious gambling addiction, the sisters try to find a way to help her while each of them deal with their own challenges. Cynthia faces commitment issues as her wedding to long-time boyfriend D'Andre (Christian Keyes) approaches. Deniece encounters a major setback in her search for a career. Vivian confronts her loneliness as she looks for meaning beyond her 50-hour work week. Rev. Beckley (Clifton Powell) serves as the spiritual guide to the Walker sisters. Aunt Connie (Jackee Harry) is their well intentioned mother surrogate who keeps everyone on their toes.

As the close-knit sisters seek their own paths to happiness, they begin to wonder if those paths will lead them in the same direction or eventually split them apart.

Written by Johnnie C. Johnson Jr., and directed by Roger Melvin, "She's Still Not Our Sister" is produced by Swirl Films. Swirl Films' Eric Tomosunas has produced numerous stage plays and feature-length films for television and DVD including Love Me or Leave Me, The Ideal Husband, She's Not Our Sister and There's a Stranger in My House.
