Shadow and Act has an exclusive from this week’s The Kings of Napa episode, which airs Tuesday night on OWN.
In the preview, Christian is checking on his mother, Vanessa after she discovers that her husband (Christian’s father and her sister, Melanie) potentially may have had an inappropriate relationship as detailed by the “little pen pal situation.”
As Christian inquires about his mother’s ability to hold things together, he informs his mother of his lofty vineyard manager aspirations. This causes Vanessa to have some concerns about Christian’s ability to deal with stress and his need to “pace himself.” Christian assures his mother that he is not only into his Bible, but is doing the work with his bipolar diagnosis also so that it isn’t left on others. Vanessa tells Christian that she is in the ring with him fighting, a gesture of support.
The series is “centered on a gorgeous and picturesque Napa Valley, California vineyard owned by the Kings, an aspirational African American family whose wealth and status land them on the pages of design magazines and society pages. The wine business has brought the family success and acclaim, but following the patriarch’s sudden exit from the company, his three children must grapple for the reins to the kingdom — to their own power, wealth, and legacy.”
Ebonée Noel, Karen LeBlanc, Rance Nix, Yaani King Mondschein, Devika Parikh and Ashlee Brian star.
