Kerry Washington may have hung up her white coat as Olivia Pope on Scandal, but her relationship with ABC is far from over. The 41-year-old is set to produce a comedy all about modern-day pastoring and blended families, inspired by the Sarah Jakes-Roberts and her husband Pastor Touré Roberts. Hamilton Tony winner Leslie Odom Jr. will portray Pastor Touré.

We’ve been praying for creative ways to translate the power of God to transform, restore, and love everyone into the vision He had in mind when creating them. What better way to share that truth than through our own experiences. We’re very excited to be co-executive producers and the inspiration behind the journey of modern pastoring and blending a family as told through the lens of Leslie and Hope. _ It’s been so great working with @leslieodomjr @kerrywashington and @saladinpatterson on this project so far. Let’s change the world people. _ #womanevolve #toureroberts #sarahjakesroberts
Sarah, most known as the daughter of Bishop T.D. Jakes, has followed her famous father’s footsteps in ministry, serving as the First Lady of both One Church LA and One Church Denver, alongside her husband.
The Roberts are also widely known online for their relatable messages of faith, their blended family and of course their incredible fashion sense.
