About the show

After witnessing a murder, Deloris Van Cartier is placed in witness protection and is sent to a convent disguised as a nun. She faces hardships with having to follow Mother Superior’s orders and adjusting to her new lifestyle. She uses her singing and dancing talent to strengthen the convent and community, only to get her cover blown. This award-winning comedy is powered by friendship, gospel music, and an inspiring storyline.
