The cast includes Michele Weaver, Will Catlett, Idara Victor, Tyrone Brown, Kadeem Hardison, Yootha Wong-Loi-Sing, and Lana Young.
According to Deadline, OWN has cancelled Love Is ___ amid allegations of domestic violence against executive producer Salim Akil. The series’ first season earned fair ratings for a cable drama, averaging a .26 in the 18-49 demo and 903,000 viewers.
OWN has decided not to move forward with the second season of Love Is _ . The TV memoir was inspired by the real-life love story of married producers Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil.”
