Apparently audiences aren’t over this topic yet…

FYI Network – the digital cable and satellite television network that is owned by A&E Networks (itself a joint-venture between Disney and the Hearst Corporation) – has announced an upcoming new original series titled “#BlackLove,” which will follow five dynamic black women from New York City as they embark on a unique journey to uncover what they are doing wrong when it comes to finding love, says the press release. 

Ten hour-long episodes are set to premiere on Tuesday, December 8 at 10:15pm ET.

Viewers will follow five women, including newly single Monet Bell from season one of “Married at First Sight,” as they discover the issues that have held them back from finding a fulfilling and loving relationship. In each episode of “#BlackLove,” the women will attend workshops on provocative themes related to love. With the guidance of two relationship experts, certified dating coach and author, Damona Hoffman, and psychotherapist and author, Jack A. Daniels, the women will dig deep into the issues surrounding their inability to find a mate. Viewers will see them go through a variety of dating scenarios, including finding love after divorce, same-sex relationships and interracial love. The experts will provide commentary about what each woman is doing right – and wrong – as they navigate their way through the dating scene.

“Over the past year, FYI has created genre-defining, trend-setting content,” said Gena McCarthy, Senior Vice President of Programming and Development for FYI. McCarthy continues, “We are always looking at what’s next, and often it’s our viewers who pave the way. This show’s unique title and concept was created in that spirit and stems from the overwhelming social media use of the hashtag during the first season of ‘Married at First Sight,’ as viewers rooted for the marriage of Monet Bell and Vaughn Copeland.”

“#BlackLove” is produced by Kinetic Content for FYI. Chris Coelen, Helen Moawad and Karrie Wolfe are executive producers for Kinetic Content. Gena McCarthy and Liz Fine serve as executive producers for FYI.
