Talk show host Oprah Winfrey has revealed her new TV show “Greenleaf” will explore the “flawed” side of Christianity.

I am not gonna do anything that is derogatory toward the church because I am of the church.

So it’s just a beautiful platform,” she said during her outing at Tribeca Film Festival.
