OWN has released the trailer to the juicy new drama, The Kings of Napa from acclaimed writer and executive producer Janine Sherman Barrois, to premiere on OWN Tuesday, January 11, 2022, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
The new drama 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 them 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.
Family secrets never stay bottled up.
The series features Ebonée Noel who plays August King, the middle sibling/ family’s brilliant marketing whiz who’s passionate about wine and always looking for new ways to expand the business. Rance Nix plays Dana King, the older brother/ savvy CFO of the winery. Karen LeBlanc plays Vanessa King, the family matriarch who gave up her career to help run the winery in Napa with her husband Reginald King, played by Isiah Whitlock Jr..

Ashlee Brian plays Christian King, the youngest brother with swag who manages the winery’s bottling facility but knows little about growing grapes. And Devika Parikh plays Melanie Pierce, August’s aunt who is now back in the States with a firestorm that threatens to change the KING family forever.
