OWN:Oprah Winfrey Network has announced that Saturday, April 12 marks the premiere date of the new docu-series, Love In the City, featuring the fast-paced lives of four fabulous friends living in New York City.

Through the group’s adventures, misadventures, romances, successes and life-altering struggles, they may not always see eye-to-eye, but when push comes to shove, they are there for each other with solid and unwavering support as they each face their own unique challenges and triumphs.
