"Love Is___" Lead Casting, Michele Weaver and Will Catlett

We're pleased to announce the casting of the lead roles in the upcoming OWN drama series LOVE IS___, from executive producers Mara Brock Akil & Salim Akil, Akil Productions and Warner Horizon Scripted Television.

· Michele Weaver (Nighthawks, Illicit, Switched at Birth) has been cast in the female lead role of Nuri. Nuri is a bubbly personality with big dreams who is struggling to make a name for herself as a sitcom staff writer while juggling an assortment of romances that only leave her partly fulfilled. After she meets Yasir, himself unemployed and barely holding onto his dreams, Nuri changes all her opinions about what she expects from a man because she's just found the one who is perfect for her.

· Will Catlett (Black Lightning) has been cast in the male lead role of Yasir. Yasir is an aspiring writer/director who is down to his last two unemployment checks, and he lives (unhappily) with his on-and-off-again ex. But after meeting the stunning Nuri, Yasir finds a reason to alter his life and the drive to access his potential.

LOVE IS___

· Network: OWN

· Auspices: Akil Productions in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television

· Series Order: 10 episodes

· Format: One-hour drama

· Pilot Written By: Mara Brock Akil

· Executive Producers: Mara Brock Akil (showrunner), Salim Akil

· Logline: A humorous drama about a modern-day power couple balancing successful careers and a beautiful family, LOVE IS___ draws inspiration from the real-life relationship between executive producers Mara Brock Akil & Salim Akil. In the world of Black Hollywood, they navigate a complex set of social codes, and this series will explore it all, from the good to the bad...to the '90s, because that's where this definitive love story all began.
