by Macon Prickett - May 15, 2018

Michele Weaver (‚ÄúIllicit‚ÄĚ) and Will Catlett (‚ÄúBlack Lightning‚ÄĚ) star in OWN's new romantic drama ‚ÄúLove Is__,‚ÄĚ from award-winning producers Mara Brock Akil (‚ÄúGirlfriends,‚ÄĚ Being Mary Jane,‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúThe Game‚ÄĚ) and Salim Akil (‚ÄúBlack Lightning‚ÄĚ). Set primarily in 1990's Los Angeles against the backdrop of Black Hollywood, ‚ÄúLove Is__‚ÄĚ 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.
