Singer Erykah Badu is gearing up for her upcoming concert in Dallas, Texas. Coming this fall she will also be guest starring on a new drama series called "Hand of God".

"Hand of God" is a drama that centers on Judge Harris (Ron Perlman), a hard-living, law-bending married man (with a high-end call girl on the side) who suffers a mental breakdown and goes on a vigilante quest to find the rapist who tore his family apart. With no real evidence to go on, Pernell begins to rely on “visions” and “messages” he believes are being sent by God through Pernell’s ventilator-bound son.

Badu will play April, a bohemian who calls herself the “blend master.” She is a drug dealer who sells marijuana and a confidante to Crystal Harris played by Dana Delaney.

Harris will recruit April to join the Hand of God chapel as an informant so she can be Crystal’s eyes and ears in this new religious world with which Pernell has become obsessed.

The series also stars Garret Dillahunt as KD, the born-again sociopath whose violent tendencies are exploited by Pernell, Andre Royo (“The Wire”) as the slick, smart, gregarious, and greedy mayor Robert ‘Bobo’ Boston, Alona Tal as Pernell’s grieving daughter-in-law Jocelyn Harris, Julian Morris as the questionable preacher Paul Curtis, Elizabeth McLaughlin as the preacher’s sultry girlfriend Alicia, and Emayatzy Corinealdi (“Middle of Nowhere”) as Pernell’s call girl and confidante Tessie.

Other guest stars to appear on the show include Lance Bass, Hunter Parrish, Jon Tenney and Jacob Vargas.
