Oprah Winfrey Network has ordered Irwin Entertainment’s #LoveGoals straight to series, joining the Discovery-owned cable net’s Saturday night lineup of unscripted programming.

#LoveGoals, premiering in March 2020, will see celebrity couples undergo an intense two-week therapy program with Spirit, a family and relationship therapist and media personality.

The couples will tackle challenges such as fame and power, infidelity, childhood trauma and communication issues.

Appearing in the show’s first season are: Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta stars Benzino and Althea Heart; former NFL player Dwayne Bowe and Theresa Bowe, who have been together for 11 years; actress and former Basketball Wives star Sundy Carter and Breyon Williams; former Salt-N-Pepa group member Dee Dee “Spinderella” Roper and comedian Quenton Coleman; and rapper Coolie and his wife Mimi Ivey.

John Irwin, Damian Sullivan and Andy Scheer are executive producers. Irwin Entertainment is the prodco behind such series as Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew and Couples Therapy, among others.

#Love Goals will be an exciting addition to the network’s Saturday night lineup centered around love and marriage,” OWN president Tina Perry said in a statement. “Spirit’s healing approach to mending and strengthening relationships in this new weekly series will make for great television.”
