Plot Synopsis

From filmmakers Codie Elaine Oliver and Tommy Oliver, BLACK LOVE is a one-hour series that highlights honest and emotional real love stories from the Black community. As newlyweds, Codie and Tommy interview married couples to explore what makes a marriage work. Celebrity couples include Oscar-winner Viola Davis and husband Julius Tennon, NAACP Image Award-winner Tia Mowry and husband/actor Cory Hardrict, Hollywood power couple Meagan Good and DeVon Franklin, NAACP Image Award-nominee Flex Alexander and wife/Grammy nominated recording artist Shanice, actress Vanessa Bell-Calloway and husband Anthony Calloway, gospel singer Erica Campbell and husband/producer Warryn Campbell, and producer/comedian Chris Spencer and wife Vanessa. The various couples describe the often-imperfect moment they entered each other's lives. They describe in unique and surprising detail how their spouse went from being a stranger to their most beloved life partner and confidant. Seeking the answer to the burning question, "What is the secret to making a marriage work?," the series 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. After premiering on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, BLACK LOVE moved to its regular timeslot -- Saturdays at 9pm -- just four days later on September 2. Season 2 of BLACK LOVE premieres Saturday, May 12, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT. The second season features Emmy award-winning actor Sterling K. Brown and wife Ryan Michelle Bathe, Emmy Award-winning actress Niecy Nash and husband Jay Tucker, Tina Knowles-Lawson and husband Richard Lawson, NBA All-Star Grant Hill and Grammy-nominated recording artist Tamia, RUN DMC's Rev Run and wife Justine Simmons, Grammy Award-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 of R&B group SWV, hip-hop artist Styles P and wife Adjua, actors Alano Miller and Dewanda Wise, NFL linebacker Bart Scott and wife Starr, and more. The couples talk about how their relationships began, the road to the altar, life after children and all of the other obstacles they may have faced to make their marriages stronger than ever.
After a four-month break, BLACK LOVE returned with new episodes on Tuesday, October 2, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. The series moves to its regular timeslot -- Saturdays at 10pm -- four days later on October 6.
