OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced this week four cast members set to star in “The Kings of Napa,” the new drama from acclaimed writer/producer Janine Sherman Barrois (“Claws,” “Self-Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker”) and Warner Bros. Television.

Sherman Barrois, who created the series, will serve as showrunner and executive produce alongside Michelle Listenbee Brown (“Love Is__,” “Real Husbands of Hollywood”) and Oprah Winfrey. Academy Award® winner Matthew A. Cherry (“Hair Love”) will direct the first two episodes of the series.

“The Kings of Napa” is focused on a gorgeous and picturesque Napa Valley, California vineyard owned by the Kings, an aspirational African American family whose wealth and status lands 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 reigns to the kingdom — to their own power, wealth, and legacy.

"The Kings of Napa" stars Ebonee Noel, Rance Nix, Karen LeBlanc and Yaani King Mondschein.
