OWN DOCU-SERIES "BLACK LOVE" DEBUTS TO RECORD RATINGS

Network Orders Additional Episodes for 2018 Featuring Sterling K. Brown, Tina Knowles-Lawson, D.L. Hughley, Rev Run and More

LOS ANGELES - OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced today it has ordered more episodes of the hit docu-series "Black Love" which debuted Tuesday (8/29/17) with 1.2 million total viewers and a 0.89 rating for W25-54, becoming OWN's most-watched unscripted series debut in OWN history and the network's highest-rated unscripted series debut in more than four years in the network's key W25-54 demo. The series was #2 in the time period across all cable for W25-54. 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 filmmakers Codie Elaine Oliver and Tommy Oliver ("?The Perfect Guy") and Confluential Films, highlights love stories from the Black community and seeks 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 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 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.
