Discovery’s OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network is expanding its unscripted programming block to two nights starting in October, and will premiere two new series, Put a Ring on It and Behind Every Man.

Put a Ring on It from filmmaker Will Packer and Lighthearted Entertainment will follow three long-time couples, with help from relationship coach Nicole LaBeach, as they test their bond by dating other people.

The social experiment series will premiere Oct. 23 at 10 p.m. ET/PT

From executive producer Carlos King, Behind Every Man (pictured) tells the story of the women behind famous men, focusing on the passions, struggles and sacrifices they have made to support the men they love.

The series, hosted by Love & Marriage: Huntsville star Melody Holt, is produced by Kingdom Reign Entertainment and LostNThought Productions.

Behind Every Man premieres Nov. 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

“Expanding to two nights with our unscripted shows gives our loyal viewers even more of the programming they’re super passionate about,” Tina Perry, president of OWN, said in a statement. “Over the years, OWN has established Saturday nights as the leading destination for Black women focusing on unscripted programs in the love and relationship space and we look forward to continuing that momentum on Friday nights this fall.”
