Cherish The Day

With an over 50% female production crew, the new OWN drama Cherish the Day, premieres on Oprah’s network in Winter 2020.

Cherish the Day, which will premiere on OWN in Winter 2020, chronicles the stirring relationship of one couple, with each episode spanning a single day. The narrative will unfold to reveal significant moments that compel us to hold true to the ones we love, from the extraordinary to the everyday. Xosha Roquemore (The Mindy Project) stars as Gently James and Alano Miller (Underground) stars as Evan Fisher. The couple meet and fall in love in Los Angeles, with the full installment spanning five years in eight episodes. Legendary Emmy-winning actress Cicely Tyson portrays Miss Luma, who Gently lives with and cares for.

“Ava continues to break down barriers as a trailblazer,” said Oprah Winfrey, CEO of OWN. “Achieving a production crew of over 50% women is an incredible accomplishment and we are so proud that Ava has a space at OWN to provide opportunity for new voices and faces in the entertainment industry.”

Cherish the Day is created and executive produced by Ava DuVernay through Array Filmworks from Warner Horizon Scripted Television. Ava DuVernay, Paul Garnes (Queen Sugar), Tanya Hamilton (Queen Sugar, Night Catches Us) and Oprah Winfrey are executive producers.
