The series will explore five celebrity marriages with the goal of answering the age-old question: “What is the secret to making a marriage work?”
Other couples who will appear on the OWN series include Oscar winner Viola Davis and Julius Tennon; NAACP Image Award-winner Tia Mowry-Hardrict and actor Cory Hardrict; NAACP Image Award-nominee Flex Alexander and Grammy-nominated recording artist Shanice; gospel singer Erica Campbell and music producer Warryn Campbell; and NAACP Image Award nominee Vanessa Bell Calloway and Dr. Anthony Calloway.
The series, which debuts on Aug. 29, was created by Codie and Tommy Oliver, husband-and-wife filmmakers who are known for films like “1982.” “Husband-and-wife filmmakers Codie and Tommy Oliver present real, honest, emotional and sometimes cringe-worthy love stories from some of the most successful people in business and entertainment as well as everyday couples,” according to OWN’s description of the series. “Many of the Christian couples who will be featured on the show have spoken about their God-centered unions in the past. Franklin and Good previously wrote a book about dating, celibacy, and marriage in their book, The Wait: A Powerful Practice for Finding the Love of Your Life and the Life You Love. The couple spoke about how they want their God-centered relationship to be an example and guide other people in love.”
