OWN released today the official trailer and key art for new drama “Delilah,” from acclaimed “Greenleaf” creator Craig Wright set to premiere on Tuesday, March 9 at 9pm ET/PT. “Delilah” is executive produced by Craig Wright, Charles Randolph-Wright, and Oprah Winfrey. In 2020, “Greenleaf” was the year’s most-watched original cable series with African-American viewers.
Maahra Hill (“Black-ish,” “How to Get Away With Murder”) stars as Delilah Connolly, a headstrong, highly principled lawyer living in Charlotte, North Carolina. Delilah’s doing her best to raise two kids alone and keep her ties to family, friends and faith strong, all the while ceaselessly seeking justice for those who need it most, in a time when the rich and powerful of Charlotte and beyond will do anything to stop her. Jill Marie Jones (“Girlfriends”) appears as Tamara Roberts, Delilah’s confidante and best friend; Susan Heyward (“Orange is the New Black”), portrays Demetria Barnes, Delilah’s newly hired, fearless, and ambitious associate; and Ozioma Akagha (Marvel’s “Runaways”), plays Delilah’s unfailingly sunny secretary, Harper Omereoha.
The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television and Harpo Films, filmed in Charlotte, North Carolina, and will air on OWN on Tuesday, March 9 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Executive producers are Craig Wright, Charles Randolph-Wright, and Oprah Winfrey.
