Based off of the real-life relationship of screenwriter Mara Brock Akil and director husband Salim, the OWN series Love Is has become quite the summer hit. It’s already been renewed for a Season 2, and based on our chat with Mara Brock Akil and stars Michele Weaver (“Nuri”) and Will Catlett (“Yasir”) we can see why. The stars have some serious chemistry and great energy, so speaking to them for our new segment, In This Room, was a treat. With Mara as the interviewer, Weaver talked about playing a younger version of the series creator, a married Catlett spoke on falling in love with two women to play Yasir, and they discussed lessons viewers will learn watching the show, and played “The Newlywed Game” to see how well they know each other. Check it out!
