Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) Announces Dope New Docu-Series “Black Love”

I hardly watch any TV, but I’m excited about Oprah’s new series. With all the reality shows that have been showing the worst that black people in America have to offer, a series highlighting honest and emotional real love stories about black celebrities we know and love is refreshing. Love & Hip-hop, Empire, Basketball Wives and generally negative “Worldstar Hip-hop” type content far outweighs positive black imagery, especially where the family is concerned.

Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), will premiere the four episode docu-series, Black Love from filmmakers Codie Elaine Oliver and Tommy Oliver (“The Perfect Guy”) and Confluential Films, on Tuesday, August 29 at 10 p.m. ET/PT (after an all-new episode of Tyler Perry’s “The Haves and the Have Nots” at 9 p.m. ET/PT). The series will air regularly on Saturdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT beginning on September 2.

Featured couples include Oscar-winner Viola Davis and husband Julius Tennon, Hollywood power couple Meagan Good and DeVon Franklin, NAACP Image Award-winner Tia Mowry and husband/actor Cory Hardrict, NAACP Image Award-nominee Flex Alexander and Grammy nominated recording artist Shanice, gospel singer Erica Campbell and husband/music producer Warryn Campbell, and many other couples from around the country.

Black Love highlights love stories from the black community and seeks to answer the burning question, “What is the secret to making a marriage work?” Black Love dives into how love begins while showing the reality of what life-long love looks like and offers proof that while it can happen for everyone, it isn’t a cakewalk. The docu-series shares honest, emotional and sometimes cringe-worthy, always-true love stories. Let us know what you think in the comments. Will you be watching Black Love?

If the trailer has you excited and you can’t wait for more, peep an Extended First Look of “Black Love”, here.
