Who does not love a good love story? Well Fluff Magazine is here to dish all the details on the new summer series “Love is____”. The hit drama, comedy and romance is aired on Oprah’s network OWN. The series is set in the 1990’s and it chronicles the love story of two young black writers in black Hollywood.
If you watched series such as Girlfriends, The Game, Being Mary Jane or Sparkle (2012) you may be familiar with television producer Mara Brock Akil. Mara not only created the series “Love is ____” with her husband of 20 years but it is based off their actual love story. That makes the story that much more interesting.
We do not want to give away too much of the plot but just know this is not your typical “Love Story”. One of the main characters, Yasir still lives with his on again-off again girlfriend and is jobless when he meets the love of his life Nuri. While Nuri, the love of his life is struggling to launch her career. There is way more to the plot but at Fluff less is more, we do not want to post any spoilers. If you want to check out the series for yourself it airs every Tuesday at 10pm on OWN.
Here is a playlist curated by Mara Brock Akil that will for sure have you feeling nostalgic and in a loving mood. It is filled with 90’s R&B favorites including Brownstone, Brandy, D’Angelo and Tamia.
