OWN's 'Ready To Love' & 'Put A Ring On It' Are Premiering Just In Time For Cuffing Season

Black love is back in full effect.

Culture & Entertainment

If there's one thing we love to see in life and love, it's a dynamic duo. Hollywood, in particular, is full of them. The power it has, the impact it has and the creativity that comes with two heads working together is a level that's unmatched by most. And such is the case with record-breaking Hollywood producer Will Packer and the OWN network. Cuffing season is officially in our midst, and together Will Packer and OWN are cooking up the perfect recipe to feed our love and relationship fix with the help of two Friday night must-see shows.

Packer will be taking over primetime with the return of the hit series Ready To Love as well as the debut of his new series Put A Ring On it. The former follows a group of grown and sexy Houston singles looking for lasting love. But this time, there's a twist--they'll be quarantined together at a secluded mountain resort with no outside distractions. Hosted by Thomas "Nephew Tommy" Miles, the tables continue to turn each week as the men and women trade the power to eliminate those they deem not ready to love. In the end, only three couples will remain.

Immediately following, Put A Ring On It will center three long-time couples as they embark on the ultimate social experiment to discover if they're truly meant to be together by dating other people. Relationship coach Dr. Nicole LaBeach will be tapped in every step of the way in order to help these couples get to the truth about why they aren't married. After nine weeks, the couples must decide if it's time to go their separate ways, or if it's time to put a ring on it.

"I'm super excited about anchoring OWN's new night with two captivating shows," says Will Packer, "This fresh and sexy content is what audiences are looking for."

Check out the first-look below to see what's in store this season.

Ready To Love and Put A Ring On It premieres this Friday, October 23 starting at 9pm ET/PT on OWN. And to keep up with the conversation, be sure to follow @owntv for updates.
