OWN’s Unscripted Takeover

The Oprah Winfrey Network broke precedent by implementing back to back unscripted blocks during their primetime weekend time slots. This break from the status quo has launched OWN as a frontrunner in the unscripted space, and provided creator and Executive Producer, Carlos King, the opportunity to reinvent and expand his brand with the successful Love & Marriage franchise. 


This panel will feature cast members from the Love & Marriage franchise, Belle Collective, and creator of both shows, Carlos King. 


Panel focuses: 

  • The success of OWN’s Love & Marriage franchise 
  • OWN’s unprecedented Friday/Saturday unscripted block 
  • The importance of showcasing Black love and success in all of its forms
