OWN has given a straight-to-series order to Cherish the Day, a new anthology series from filmmaker Ava DuVernay. The show will mark DuVernay's second series at the network, after the critically acclaimed Queen Sugar.
Variety, which first broke the news about the series, says: Each season, the anthology series chronicles the romance of one couple, with each episode spanning a single day. The season-long narrative will unfold to reveal significant moments in a relationship that compel people to hold true to the ones they love, from the extraordinary to the everyday. The show is currently slated to debut in winter 2020.
“OWN is home. 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," said DuVernay.
She will executive produce the series with Oprah Winfrey, and Tanya Hamilton will be the showrunner.
“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," said Oprah.
DuVernay also has The Red Line, an event series she is producing with Greg Berlanti that'll premiere soon as a midseason entry on CBS.
