The true story of a crime fighting pastor is coming to network television with the help of Hollywood executive DeVon Franklin.
The dramatic series, “Spirit OfThe Law,” is being developed by NBC in conjunction with producers Franklin (“The Star” “Miracles From Heaven”) and Tony Krantz (“24,” “Felicity”) who will serve as co-executive producers on the project along with David Gould (“The Cure”). The series is based on of the life of California Pastor Kalvin Cressel who balances being a full-time pastor and an undercover agent at the height of gang violence in Compton, California.
Franklin announced his excitement about the project on social media this week.
“I’m excited about this! Can’t wait for you all to see it,” Franklin wrote on Instagram, linking the Deadline article about the series. “‘Spirit of the Law’ is the story of a real-life Compton pastor who was a federal special agent for 30 years! It’s incredible!”
Cressel, pastor of the Greater Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church in Compton, and his wife, Pam, will serve as executive consultants on the series, according to Deadline.
