TV One Announces That Production Has Begun On A Marvin Sapp Biopic, ‘Never Would Have Made It’

TV has announced that they have begun production on a Marvin Sapp biopic.  The film will tell the story of the legendary Gospel singer, whose story began as a member of  Commissioned before becoming an award winning, chart topping solo star. The film is scheduled for an August 21st release on TV One. The biopic is titled, Never Would Have Made it, which makes plenty of sense.

Chaz Lamar Shepherd plays Marvin Sapp

The Marvin Sapp biopic stars Chaz Lamar Shepherd (pictured above) as Bishop Marvin Sapp.  The veteran actor has played in “Marvel’s Luke Cage,” “The Game,” “Moesha,” “The Parkers,” “The Steve Harvey Show” and several other projects.

Chaz Lamar Shepherd is also a singer, having released several albums of his own.  So he is uniquely capable of being able to play Bishop Sapp in the Marvin Sapp biopic.

Actress, Ambre Anderson (above) will star alongside Shepherd as MaLinda Prince Sapp.  Anderson has previously appeared in “Power Book II” and “Manifest Evil” among other projects.

“It is an honor to tell Marvin Sapp’s life story,” said TV One’s Executive Producer Jason Ryan. “His vast contributions to gospel and American music are undeniable. We know this film will resonate with our viewers.”
