Variety is reporting that OWN has given a straight-to-series order to Cherish the Day, a romantic anthology from Queen Sugar creator Ava DuVernay.
With Tanya Hamilton (Night Catches Us) set as showrunner, Cherish the Day will spend each season focusing on one couple’s relationship, with each episode to span a single day. The series looks to examine the way people connect and communicate, as well as the moments that define the love we feel for our significant other.
Cherish the Day joins a scripted slate for OWN that includes The Haves and the Have Nots, If Loving You is Wrong, The Paynes, Greenleaf, and Queen Sugar. The network will be premiering Ambitions, a soap executive produced by Will Packer and starring Robin Givens, and Tarell Alvin McCraney’s David Makes Man later this year.
Cherish the Day is set to premiere on OWN in winter 2020.
