The Colors of Love first debuted off-Broadway with an all Black Latino/African American cast in early 2011. In summer 2011 The Colors of Love underwent development for its transition to the television screen with New York City as its backdrop. The "dramedy" delves deeper into the private lives of each of the four couples.
In the Off-Broadway production the couples are at the height of their relationships and are exploring the issues that are placed before them. Each pair of lovers is working through their relationship and attempting to find the true meaning of happiness while achieving and maintaining a level of self gratification and satisfaction.
The couples encompass all stages and ages from high school sweethearts Angela Brown and Jeffery Blackman dealing with the challenges of cohabitating; to the unspoken sexual taboos that haunt Mark and Valerie Pinkette; the seemingly perfect relationship of Brittany Green and James Rojo; and matrimonial veterans Melissa and Franklin Grayson who are succeeding professionally at the expense of their marriage.
