OWN Adds Harlem-Set Docuseries 'Crazy.Sexy.Life.'
OWN has given straight-to-series orders for a new unscripted show revolving around four friends in Harlem.
Crazy.Sexy.Life. centers on four longtime friends living in New York City -- Kiyah, Bershan, Chenoa and Tiffany -- and their personal and professional struggles and successes.
"We feel strongly that Crazy.Sexy.Life. will resonate with our viewers," OWN president Sheri Salata said in a release announcing the news Wednesday. "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."
The series is produced by CORE Media Group and hails from executive producers D'Angela Proctor, Jen O'Connell, Rob Lee and Lenid Rolov. Doug Wilson executive produced the pilot.
OWN will give Crazy a special preview on Tuesday, Sept. 3, at 10 p.m. following the fall finale of Tyler Perry's The Haves and the Have Nots. The show will return in early 2014.
