Mara Brock Akil Speaks On “Love Is ___” Cancellation

Fans of the show “Love Is___” were saddened to find out through headlines that show had been canceled earlier this week. There was speculation that the show might suffer after Salim Akil was popped with a lawsuit by a woman claiming that he not only stole her script to create the show, but she also accused him of domestic and sexual abuse. All of these allegations supposedly took place during the Akil’s marriage. Although Mara has NOT addressed her husband’s lawsuit, she did make a somber statement to fans about the show being wiped away. Here’s what she wrote:

LOVE IS___ I am saddened that this great group of #artists and #storytellerswill no longer get to create together on this project in this way. This was a special tribe— assembling teams like this is by the grace of God— and I will miss not being on set with them to make more magic. And though I know we will all go on to create more amazing work, I’m grateful there was a moment in time that we came together and had the courage to give our best to try and tell a story about love with love. #InTheLandOf #LoveIs

Are YOU sad to see the show go?
