OWN Sets Premiere Date for New Drama 'Delilah' Starring Maahra Hill

OWN has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original drama series Delilah starring Maahra Hill.

The drama's first season will launch on Tuesday, March 9 at 9/8c.

Delilah (Hill) left a demanding white-shoe law firm a decade ago and hung up her own shingle so she could make raising her kids her number one priority. Now she takes on cases the big firms ignore and finds herself, more often than not, going head-to-head with the powerful and privileged as she fights for the disenfranchised. In addition to raising her two kids, Maia and Marcus, Delilah also cares for her young nephew Dion; manages her relationship with her frustrating ex; and to top it all off, she's about to go up against her best friend Tamara in court for the first time. Delilah has always represented the underdogs. Tamara has always represented the wealthy and powerful. But this case is different: this time, Delilah's most cherished friendship is on the line, and there are lives at stake. But Delilah does what she always does - she seeks justice for those who need it most.

The drama also stars Jill Marie Jones, Susan Heyward, Ozioma Akagha, Kelly Jacobs, Khalil Johnson and Braelyn Rankins.

Recurring guest stars in the first season include LaMonica Garrett, Lyriq Bent, Joseph Callender, Michel Curiel, Nigel Gibbs, Leonard Harmon, Candace B. Harris, Gray Hawks, Joe Holt, Saycon Sengbloh and Amanda Tavarez.

Craig Wright (Greenleaf) created the drama. He executive produces with Oprah Winfrey and director Charles Randolph Wright. Warner Bros. Television and Harpo Films produce.
