New Oxygen Show is already sparking controversy. “Preachers of L.A.” will follow the lavish lives and booming careers of six mega pastors — Clarence McClendon, Deitrick Haddon (one of the show’s producers), Jay Haizlip, Noel Jones, Wayne Chaney and Ron Gibson.

A description on Oxygen’s website boasts: “Known for their fiery sermons, community outreach and passionate followings, pastors have become iconic, beloved, and sometimes polarizing figures in modern culture. Yet, few people have access to these larger-than-life men away from the pulpit. Until now.”

As the official trailer reveals, the docuseries shows these men of faith “inside and outside of the church” as they shop, golf, vacation. Bishop Clarence McClendon said, “The Bible says that I wish above all things that you will prosper and be in health, even as your soul will prosper–I believe that,” expressing a view that all of the preachers seem to hold in common. And when it comes to the men’s lifestyles there’s no shortage of controversy.

Via Eurweb reports:
