Crazy.Sexy.Life.

Oprah Winfrey's OWN Network announced today that it has ordered a new Harlem-based docu-series (aka reality TV series) titled Crazy.Sexy.Life. straight to series.

The show centers on the fast-paced lives of 4 friends living in New York City. 

Here's the breakdown:

Kiyah, Bershan, Chenoa and Tiffany have known each other for more than ten years, and are constant sources of inspiration, support, competition and companionship to one another. Kiyah, an ambitious and successful celebrity hair stylist, is the link that brought the four friends together, and New York City's legendary Harlem neighborhood is where the quartet come together on a regular basis... over drinks, lunches, dinners, you name it. Two are married, two are single, and all are strong and fiercely independent women who believe in living out their dreams and not letting anybody or anything get in their way.

The network will offer a special sneak preview of the series on Tuesday, September 3 at 10 p.m. ET/PT following the fall finale of Tyler Perry's The Haves and the Have Nots at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The series will premiere in early 2014.

"We feel strongly that 'Crazy.Sexy.Life.' will resonate with our viewers," said Sheri Salata, president, OWN. "Set against the backdrop of America's most vibrant and competitive city, this show details what real life is all about for a quartet of very different personalities who have embraced one another as 'family' for more than a decade, and who depend on one another unconditionally."

The series is produced by CORE Media Group and executive produced by D'Angela Proctor, Jen O'Connell, Rob Lee and Lenid Rolov. Doug Wilson served as the pilot's executive producer.

Welcome to the new OWN.
