About If Loving You is Wrong

"If Loving You Is Wrong" is the new dramatic series created for television by writer/director Tyler Perry. With a diverse cast and storylines ranging from heartfelt to scandalous, the sexy, sleek drama takes viewers into the lives of a group of husbands, wives and friends that live and love in the same middle class neighborhood. On the surface they are true-to-life, relatable people - raising children, working jobs, finding and maintaining romance - but just below the veneer of happiness, their lives are entangled by heartbreak, deceit and lies that threaten to destroy everything. Throughout the season, "If Loving You Is Wrong" follows Alex (Amanda Clayton, "John Carter"), Kelly (Edwina Findley, "Treme"), Marcie (Heather Hemmens, "Hellcats"), Esperanza (Zulay Henao, "Single Mom's Club") and Natalie (April Parker-Jones, "Jericho") on their quest to find love in the midst of managing very complex lives. For these women, love is an ever-present necessity in spite of the high price that sometimes must be paid. "If Loving You is Wrong" is produced for OWN by Tyler Perry Studios. It is created, written, directed and executive produced by Tyler Perry.
