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.

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.

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 additional couples from around the country.

8 thoughts on “OWN Introduces New Docu-Series ‘Black Love’

  1. I watched the show and greatly enjoyed it. However, I found myself unable to settle with the title, and premise of the show being focused on just black marriages. I understand cultural differences but cannot see how a show could be sensibly focused on just African American marriages where it is the very same God wrought institution for any color human.
    I in the end find the show only supporting segregation, which is disheartening to me…. and on the OWN network no less. Can anyone explain this to me?

      Y not. 99.7% of television shows are all white. It’s about time for a show to be about black love, and nothing negative about African Americans. And this show didn’t disappoint again, it’s still not all about blacks.

    • Because every other network already has everyone else covered. If we felt like you then OWN would ne the only network we could watch to see a positive image of us. If you don’t like it or the title, take your pick of any other network that makes you comfortable.

    Celebrities aren’t the only ones that have black love. There are “regular” people such as ourselves that share our “Black Love” daily and have done so for 35 years including 6 children and 12 grandchildren!

    I’m looking forward to seeing the series “Black Love.” Its about time for a counterbalance to all the negative television shows that portray some African American couples in some kind of marital or relationship conflict replete with deception, dishonesty, mistrust and lies. Not all African American couples deal with each other in such destructive ways. My husband and I have been together for 29 years and married for 28 years. It has not been easy because we are alike in some ways and very different in other ways. Our over-riding commitment was to our son, maintaining our family as a cohesive unit, and to working through any conflicts that we have encountered. Our love was and still is based on mutual respect for each other, trust in each other, negotiation, compromise, and a willingness to put our egos and self interest aside for the greater good- our relationship with each other. I would like to hear what other couples who have successful marriages will share so that all of us can keep learning from each other.
