Ava DuVernay’s New Romantic Series Headed To OWN

Contributed by Nia Seaton

Award-winning director Ava DuVernay has a brand new series in the making. The upcoming series is entitled Cherish the Day and will be an anthology. She will be alongside Oprah Winfrey in producing this show.

DuVernay currently has a show on OWN’s network, Queen Sugar, also produced by Winfrey. The dynamic duo are not strangers in working together and continue to provide their audience with stories that matter.

Each season, the anthology series chronicles the romance of one couple, with each episode spanning a single day. The season-long narrative will reveal significant moments in a relationship that compel people to hold true to the ones they love, from the extraordinary to the everyday.

“OWN is home,” said DuVernay. “I’m honored to create television for a network headed by an artist with spectacular vision and unbridled passion for the stories that we want to tell.”

Cherish the Day is produced for OWN by Forward Movement and Harpo Films in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television

Winfrey added in an interview, “Ava is a visionary storyteller. She brings so much care, so much heart, so much love to the art she creates. I’m excited to continue collaborating together with our very first anthology series for OWN.”

Congratulations to Ava!
