Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network is having a new documentary series, Love in the City. Some are saying the series is an urban version of Sex and the City. Below is the run-down of the show, you decide if the show is a replica or stands alone “in the city.”

Kiyah Wright, Bershan Shaw, Chenoa Maxwell and Tiffany Jones are four fabulous women taking New York City head on. The four friends have known each other for more than ten years, the women constant sources of inspiration, support, competition and companionship for one another.

Two of the friends are married, two are single, and all are strong, fiercely independent women who believe in living out their dreams and not letting anyone or anything get in their way.

In an interview with the Grio’s Chris Witherspoon the ladies of Love in the City talked about the similarities between their show and Sex and the City.

“We’ve known each other for ten plus years,” Tiffany said. “We deal with real issues…we laugh, we joke, we talk about men, sex, fashion. [Love in the City] is the new modern Sex in the City.”

Tiffany and Bershan are both survivors of cancer and hope that viewers of Love in the City see their stories and gain awareness on how to overcome some of life’s obstacles.

“In 2007 I was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer. Two years later I was, two weeks before my wedding day, I was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. A doctor told me I had three months to live,” Bershan recalled.

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.

The show airs on Saturdays at 10/9 central on the OWN network.
