Oprah Winfrey’s OWN announced today that it has ordered “Crazy.Sexy.Life.,” a new Harlem-based docu-series, straight to series.
The show centers on the fast-paced lives of four friends living in Harlem, a neighborhood in the Upper Manhattan borough of New York City.
Here’s OWN’s synopsis:
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 network will air a special sneak preview of the series on Tuesday, September 3 at 10 p.m. ET, “Crazy.Sexy.Life.” is expected to premiere early 2014.
OWN is clearly targeting its core demographic with this new reality series, and it seems the network is finally feeling comfortable in its own skin, so to speak.
“We feel strongly that ‘Crazy.Sexy.Life.’ will resonate with our viewers,” said Sheri Salata, president, OWN. “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.”
“Crazy.Sexy.Life.” is produced by CORE Media Group and executive produced by D’Angela Proctor, Jen O’Connell, Rob Lee and Lenid Rolov. Doug Wilson served as the pilot’s executive producer.
