Trailer Released For Provocative New Series 'Monogamy' Starring Jill Marie Jones, Brian White, Vanessa Simmons And More

UMC (Urban Movie Channel) has announced its new original drama series, Craig Ross, Jr.'s Monogamy, which the network calls "a tantalizing new series that pushes past the limitations and boundaries of traditional marriage."

The series, from Craig Ross, Jr. and Caryn Ward Ross follows four married couples as they agree to participate in an unconventional form of therapy with the hopes of reviving their failing relationships.

The cast includes Brian White, Jill Marie Jones, Darius McCrary, Vanessa Simmons, Wesley Jonathan , Caryn Ward Ross, Blue Kimble, and Chrystee Pharris.

Its description: The show explores the meaning of monogamy. Does it work? Is it necessary for a lasting and fulfilling relationship? Is it time to expand the definition, or is it a societal construct whose time has come to an end? In Craig Ross, Jr.’s Monogamy, four troubled couples from around the country travel to Los Angeles, surrendering themselves to a new counseling treatment called “Swap Therapy.” Desperate to repair their broken marriages, they agree to trade spouses while being completely away from, and out of communication with, their regular lives for two months. As they seek healing and a better understanding of their individual relationships, each participant begins to see themselves in ways they could not have imagined for the first time in their lives. As they struggle to manage their short-term desires while maintaining their long-term commitments, they face challenges and temptations that ultimately may prove too strong to fight through.

The first episode of Craig Ross, Jr.’s Monogamy will premiere at www.UMC.tv on Friday, May 4, 2018. New episodes will air weekly through June 1, 2018.
