‘Black Love’ is winning. The four-episode documentary featuring a host of celebrity couples talking honestly about marriage’s ups and down debuted to the highest ratings ever for unscripted shows on OWN.

The network has ordered more episodes of the hit docu-series which debuted Tuesday with 1.2 million total viewers.  Additionally, the premiere of “Black Love” was the #2 most social primetime episode on national cable.

The series will debut in its regular timeslot, Saturdays ‪at 9 p.m. ET/PT, ‪beginning this Saturday, September 2.

The new episodes for 2018 will feature Emmy-nominated actor Sterling K. Brown and wife Ryan Michelle Bathe, Tina Knowles-Lawson and husband Richard Lawson, NBA All-Star Grant Hill and Grammy-nominated recording artist ‪Tamia, Hip Hop influencer Rev Run and wife Justine Simmons, Grammy-winning gospel recording artist ‪Kirk Franklin and wife Tammy, comedian D.L. Hughley and wife LaDonna, former NFL-running back Eddie George and wife Taj, and more.

Black Love, from married filmmakers Codie Elaine Oliver and Tommy Oliver (The Perfect Guy) and Confluential Films, highlights love stories from the Black community to answer the burning question, “What does it take to make a marriage work?”

Black Love dives into how love begins while showing the reality of what lifelong 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 for the current four-episode season 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, Grammy award-winners ‪Erica Campbell and ‪Warryn Campbell, and many additional couples from around the country.

One thought on “‘Black Love’ Is Winning For OWN Network

  1. It is good to show that we love each other and not all black men are running around trying to find white women when they make money and black women love their black men and are doing right by each other. This is the MAJORITY of the case but too often, some folks take a FEW people and make you think all blacks are doing it. NOT. and also, The majority of black men in sports such as the NFL, baseball, basketball, DO NOT have non black wives. That is another lie. Most of these do have black wives or girlfriends. Sometimes we as black push these lies about us as well. Good to see a positive show.
