The Colors of Love personifies life in NYC: finding love, independence, wealth and the highs and lows of living in the greatest city in the world. With the backdrop of the show built around New York City’s 5 boroughs (much like the classic New York Undercover and highly publicized Sex in the City) The Colors of Love infuses love and life into this hectic city.
Originally developed by the Black Latina Movement in late 2010 as a stage play, The Colors of Love first debuted off-Broadway with an all Black Latino/African American cast in early 2011. In summer 2011 The Colors of Love underwent development for its transition to the television screen with a series that was shot in its entirety in New York City.
The “dramedy” delves deeper into the private lives of four equally different couples in various stages of their lives. Each pair of lovers is working through their relationship and attempting to find the true meaning of happiness while achieving and maintaining a level of self gratification and satisfaction.
The couples encompass all stages and ages from the coming of age Angela Brown and Jeffrey Blackman in their “Honeymoon stage” exploring the possibilities of “coupledom”; to the picture-perfect loving couple Mark Pinkette and Valerie Naranja who we see in this season become Mr. and Mrs. Pinkette; the tumultuous and bumpy relationship of Brittany Green and James Rojo; and Melissa Blanco and Franklin Grayson who go from pre-law college students to successful professionals at the expense of their marriage.
Double Advantage/Triple Markets
The Colors of Love is geared to cou-ples/people in re-lationships and men and women of color and dedi-cated to bringing NYC based produc-tions back on the map. Similar to the
hit show Friends, The Colors of Love is based on couples and their journey through friend-ships and romantic rela-tionships. The show also dives into the individual lives of the men and women on their day to day happenings. The first of its kind with an all African American/Black Latino cast, but
similar to the cable/film sensa-tion Sex In The City, The Colors of Love addresses many issues faced by women of all walks of life. The Colors of Love was de-signed to fill the void many Afri-can American, Latino and female viewers feel regarding the lack of representation in the media.
African-Americans are the largest minority segment of the U.S. television household population, comprising approximately 13 percent of the 109.6 million TV households and Hispanics account for 48 million tele-vision viewers. There are 48 million Hispanic televi-sion viewers that Nielsen measures.
