The trailer for OWN’s new drama series Love Is__, from Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil, is finally here.
The show stars Michele Weaver and Will Calett as a couple “chasing their dreams” while following their hearts.
Set in 1990’s Los Angeles, Love Is__ “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,” according to Deadline.
The show is inspired by the Akils’ own relationship.
Oprah Winfrey shared the first trailer of the show, which premieres June 19, on Twitter.
