[via press release from OWN]


Los Angeles - OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced today the principal cast of the previously announced television drama "If Loving You is Wrong" (former working title: "Single Mom's Club") from prolific writer, director, producer Tyler Perry. The new series, premiering September 2014, follows the relationships of a group of husbands and wives that live and love on the same street. While the neighbors come from very different backgrounds, their lives are similar - raising children, dealing with exes, worrying about money and keeping romance in their relationships. But just below the surface --- secrets, lies and deception threaten to destroy what they have built.

Information for the series regulars is as follows.

Amanda Clayton ("John Carter") plays Alex who is married to Brad, played by Aiden Turner ("All My Children"). Together they have two children. The couple's relationship seems solid, but a secret threatens to derail their marriage.

Heather Hemmens ("Hellcats") plays Marcie, a real estate agent married to Randal, played by Eltony Williams ("24"). Together they are struggling with Marcie's inability to have children.

Zulay Henao ("The Single Moms Club") plays Esperanza, ex-wife of Edward, played by Joel Rush ("Days of Our Lives"). She and Edward are parents of an eight-year-old girl. Esperanza is terrified what her ex will do when he finds out about her new boyfriend, Julius, played by Octavio Pizano ("East Los High").

Edwina Findley ("Treme") plays Kelly, mother to a young son. Her boyfriend, and father to her son, has been away on a relief mission in Haiti for a year.

April Parker-Jones ("Jericho") plays Natalie, a single mother of three kids at home and one adult son in prison. She constantly struggles to pay the bills and her ex Lushion, played by Charles Malik Whitfield ("Law and Order"), is trying to love her while taking care of their son, Frank.

"If Loving You is Wrong" is OWN's second primetime drama series from Tyler Perry. The network's first drama series from Tyler Perry, "The Haves and the Have Nots" (Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET) returned with new episodes on May 27 to over three million total viewers, becoming the network's highest season premiere in history. Additionally, popular comedy series "Love Thy Neighbor" from Tyler Perry, Wednesday night's #1 original cable series for African-American W25-54 and total viewers in Q1 2014, will return with new episodes on Wednesday, June 25 at 9 p.m. ET.

"If Loving You is Wrong" is produced for OWN by Tyler Perry Studios. It is created, written, directed and executive produced by Tyler Perry.
