CLEO TV’s new series TOUGH LOVE: LOS ANGELES sheds light on the mental health impacts of heartache and grief in the next episode airing Sunday, January 17, at 9 P.M. ET/8C. The 10-episode prime-time series spinoff is based on the Emmy-nominated web series TOUGH LOVE, which takes a raw and vulnerable look at the very real challenges of losing a loved one and enduring a breakup.  

The crew begins to unravel as this week’s episode addresses themes of self-harm and grief. Having a very difficult time processing her brother’s death, Mya begins to self-medicate. Responding to an apparent plea for help, Rashad urges Story to check on Mya after he receives a cryptic text message. After breaking down the door, they find Mya nearly passed out and attempt to resuscitate her. Story continues to catfish Raymond until he gets fed up with her excuses and decides to cut her off. Brian and Denise continue to butt heads as she doesn’t understand why Brian refuses to use a portion of his investment money on their impending wedding plans.

Created by Caleb and Roni Davis, TOUGH LOVE was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award in 2017 for Outstanding Digital Daytime Drama Series. The series is produced by Creative Direction Group.
