I’m a little excited about this show because of the Executive Producers, Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil. Collectively they have gifted us with Girl Friends, Being Mary Jane, The Game, and Black Lightning. They get us melinated folk and tell our stories with precision. I’m low key still mourning the loss of “Being Mary Jane”, but I’m going to be alright.
Love Is ____ is a romantic drama that tells the story of Nuri (Michele Read more) and Yasir (Will ) that according to OWN, are a couple from seemingly opposite worlds, as they chase their dreams and learn to follow their hearts.
