Finally, there’s a show on relationships, and Black love at that. Atlanta based relationship therapist Jack A. Daniels will join a mission to help five women in New York find love. Why is it so difficult for Black women to find love? Well, A&E Network’s FYI presents a new reality tv show where we will watch five women embark on a journey to find out what they are doing wrong in this quest to find their soul mate.
Who are these women? Some may recognize one familiar face Monet Bell from “Married at First Sight.” She will be joined by a 26-year-old web developer, Jahmil “Jae” Eady; Cynthia Branch, a 38-year-old licensed social worker and life coach; Tennesha Wood, a 30-year-old regional sales manager, and Laree “LA” Thomas, a 35-year old travel consultant. One of the women is in pursuit of a same sex marriage.
Why Black love? Gena McCarthy, senior vice president of Programming and Development for FYI says the network prides itself on creating “genre-defining, trend-setting content.” Their previous show “Married at First Sight: Season One” did well and throughout episodes featuring Bell the hashtag #Blacklove was used often on social media by fans.
Daniels has had much success with his books Stay Out of Your Own Way and I Need a Wife.
The show begins Dec. 8. Will you be watching?
