DuVernay was not available on the carpet for interviews, however, she and the cast sat down for a panel discussion to discuss the series, as well as to provide a sneak peek of the first season. DuVernay stated that she was inspired to make this series by her own parents, who were a demonstration of two people with completely different backgrounds and personalities that were able to come together and have a successful, loving marriage.

“I needed a break from history and I think there is a revolutionary act in exploring love … love relationships and when they see us, because I think to be black and to maintain love in this country is a revolutionary act.”

EURweb was able to catch up with and interview some of the cast and other VIPs. Check out “Cherish the Day” when it premieres on OWN on February 11 and 12.
