Iyanla Fix My Life

In my post on new fall TV talk show hosts of African descent, I completely forgot about Iyanla Vanzant's new series for the OWN network, titled Iyanla: Fix My Life.

With a title like that, what more do you need to know about the show?

Here's the press release from OWN, ad underneath, watch a dramatic preview of the first episode, which is scheduled to air on OWN, in a 2-part series premiere, on September 15 and 22, at 10pm ET/PT.

Los Angeles, CA - The SEASON premiere of THE GROUNDBREAKING NEW SERIES "Iyanla: Fix My Life" features life coach Iyanla Vanzant as she confronts the heartbreak and personal crisis of "Basketball Wives" star Evelyn Lozada, estranged wife of NFL star Chad Ochocinco Johnson. Vanzant works to uncover the source of Lozada's innermost pain, giving her the tools to let go and move forward with her life. Explosive secrets are uncovered and difficult truths are faced in the powerful two-part series premiere airing Saturday, September 15 and 22 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.

In "Iyanla: Fix My Life," Vanzant travels the country on a mission to restore relationships and heal lives in a riveting and revealing new series. Earlier this summer, Vanzant visited Miami to meet newlyweds Johnson and Lozada and explore the couple's publicly volatile relationship. Despite Johnson choosing not to participate in the session, Vanzant and Lozada connected one-on-one and tapped into the deep-rooted anger, resentment and insecurities that have plagued Lozada.

Weeks later, after the shocking allegations of a domestic violence incident came to light, Vanzant reconnected with an emotionally raw Lozada in New York for a no-holds-barred conversation that details the eye-opening events of the night that led Lozada to file for divorce.

Watch an extended preview of the show below:
