If Loving You Is Wrong 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 plays Alex who is married to Brad, played by Aiden Turner. Together they have two children. The couple’s relationship seems solid, but a secret threatens to derail their marriage.
Heather Hemmens plays Marcie, a real estate agent married to Randal, played by Eltony Williams. Together they are struggling with Marcie’s inability to have children.
Zulay Henao plays Esperanza, ex-wife of Edward, played by Joel Rush. 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.
Edwina Findley 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 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, is trying to love her while taking care of their son, Frank.
From OWN’s press release, January 2017… Continuing its successful partnership with prolific producer Tyler Perry, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced today a 38-episode order for a new comedy series from Perry, “The Paynes,” a spinoff of his popular series “House of Payne.” The network has also ordered 44 additional episodes of Perry’s hit OWN drama series “The Haves and the Have Nots” and 18 episodes of “If Loving You is Wrong.” With a diverse cast and storylines ranging from heartfelt to scandalous, the sexy, sleek one-hour drama from Tyler Perry 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” continues to follow Alex (Amanda Clayton), Kelly (Edwina Findley Dickerson), Marcie (Heather Hemmens), Esperanza (Zulay Henao) and Natalie (April Parker Jones) 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.
