OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network has given a straight to series order to Crazy.Sexy.Life., a new original docu-series about the fast-paced lives of four girlfriends living in New York City. The show is getting a high-profile sneak preview on September 3 behind the fall finale of Tyler Perry’s drama series The Haves And The Have Nots before the official series premiere in early 2014. Crazy.Sexy.Life hails from Core Media Group, marking the first series developed internally at the company since its rebrand and relaunch last year under Marc Graboff. “Set against the backdrop of America’s most vibrant and competitive city, this show details what real life is all about for a quartet of very different personalities who have embraced one another as ‘family’ for more than a decade, and who depend on one another unconditionally,” said OWN president Sheri Salata. Here’s the network’s description of the new show:

About “Crazy.Sexy.Life.”

Kiyah, Bershan, Chenoa and Tiffany have known each other for more than ten years, and are constant sources of inspiration, support, competition and companionship to one another. Kiyah, an ambitious and successful celebrity hair stylist, is the link that brought the four friends together, and New York City’s legendary Harlem neighborhood is where the quartet come together on a regular basis … over drinks, lunches, dinners, you name it. Two are married, two are single, and all are strong and fiercely independent women who believe in living out their dreams and not letting anybody or anything get in their way.

The series is produced by CORE Media Group and executive produced by D’Angela Proctor, Core’s Jen O’Connell, Core-based producer Rob Lee, and Lenid Rolov. Doug Wilson served as the pilot’s executive producer.
