About "Queen Sugar"

In the series' third season, the critically acclaimed drama series from Academy Award-nominated director Ava DuVernay and executive producer Oprah Winfrey, returns as the Bordelons find themselves continuing their fight to save their family farm and father's legacy as they navigate their own personal journeys. They soon find that their fight extends beyond their close-knit family, but also to the community. Charley (Dawn-Lyen Gardner) remains in the thick of the trials and tribulations in both her personal and professional life as she continues to battle the Landry family while also trying to ensure Micah's (Nicholas Ashe) safety and future. Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe) is still reeling from learning from Darla (Bianca Lawson) that he might not be the biological father of his son, Blue (Ethan Hutchison), and attempts to push forward as the new cane season begins. A new and unexpected love in the form of an old friend comes into Nova's (Rutina Wesley) life and challenges her long-held notions of relationships while also offering her something she didn't think she could ever have.

"Queen Sugar" was named Television Show of the Year from both American Black Film Festival (ABFF Honors) and African American Film Critics Association (AAFCA) for the second consecutive year and was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for Best Drama Series. In 2017, Queen Sugar was Wednesday night's #1 original cable series among African-American W25-54 and Wednesday night's #2 original scripted cable series W25-54.

About "Love Is___"

Michele Weaver ("Illicit") and Will Catlett ("Black Lightning") star in OWN's new romantic drama "Love Is___," from award-winning producers Mara Brock Akil ("Girlfriends," Being Mary Jane," "The Game") and Salim Akil ("Black Lightning"). Set primarily in 1990's Los Angeles against the backdrop of Black Hollywood, "Love Is___" follows Nuri (Michele Weaver) and Yasir (Will Catlett), a couple from seemingly opposite worlds, as they chase their dreams and learn to follow their hearts. Told from the perspective of the couple's present-day selves, the romantic drama also revisits the social issues and vibrant black culture of that time reflecting on how it all aligned to shape the couple they have become nearly 20 years later -- a power couple navigating a complex set of social codes while also balancing successful careers and a beautiful family. Drawing inspiration from creators Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil's own relationship journey, the series explores the highs, the lows, and the magic of falling (and staying) in love.

"Love Is___" also features Primetime Emmy(R)-winner Loretta Devine ("Grey's Anatomy"), NAACP Image Award-nominee Vanessa Bell Calloway ("Coming to America"), NAACP Image Award-winner Tim Reid ("Sister, Sister"), Tosin Morohunfola ("The Chi"), Tammy Townsend ("Sherri"), and Michael King ("Black Lightning"), all with recurring roles.
