American Pie - 3, Episode Three

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1988

In this episode of his US TV odyssey director Geoff Steven reaches the Deep South. In Memphis, jailer WC Watson introduces his gospel singing family and there are rapturous scenes as they perform at their Beale Street church. In New Orleans, a youth court judge and her lawyer husband attempt to balance jobs and social work with raising their own children. The flipside is provided by descendants of slave owners looking for ways to hold on to their mansions now that the plantations that once supported them have gone.

Being black, singing gospel is kind of a heritage type situation.
– WC Watson (patriarch of the Watson Singers)
