When Black Love creators Codie Elaine Oliver and Tommy Oliver first started the docuseries, it was a documentary. They had way too much material for a feature doc so they created a series which is now the most watched unscripted series on OWN.
From A-list couples like Sterling K. Brown and wife Ryan Michelle Bathe to everyday people that could be your next door neighbor, the series highlights the different kinds of positive love stories in the Black community — something that Codie saw there was a lack of in TV and film. She has plenty of experience in the Black love department seeing as though she and Tommy are married in real life.
