A new television series focused on preachers in Detroit — ahem, Preachers of Detroit — is set to premiere at 10 p.m. on Feb. 18. The series "focuses on powerful themes of faith, family, and friendship as these seven men and women of the cloth share their lives, transformations and triumphs in and out of the pulpit in Detroit, Michigan." Featured preachers includes Bishop Charles H. Ellis III, Bishop Corletta Vaughn, Pastor Tim Alden, Pastor David Bullock, Bishop-Elect Clarence Langston, Pastor Don William Shelby Jr., and Evangelist Dorinda Clark-Cole. 

According to the Free Press, the Michigan Film Office in Lansing awarded the show's producers a $405,811 incentive to film here. But we have to ask ... where else were they going to make a show about preachers of Detroit? Previously, the show's exec Rod Aissa described it as "an offshoot of Preachers of L.A., but I think the bigger story is Detroit is a city of resurgence" — which we found to be a bit of a cliché elevator pitch.



The series premieres February 18 at 10 p.m. Watch the trailer over at the official site.
