Previews of the "Our America" poly documentary airing next Tuesday

Oprah Winfrey Network

"Our America with Lisa Ling" has put up 30-second and 2-minute promos for its one-hour poly documentary that will air Tuesday March 5th. A lot of us have high hopes for this one. Looks good so far:

Preview: Monogamy's Not for Everyone
Lisa Ling wants to know: how many is too many? There are half a million Americans practicing polyamory or committed non-monogamy. Lisa Ling meets three families who believe it is possible to love more than one person at a time. Tune in for this all-new episode of Our America with "I Love You & You...&You" on Tuesday, March 5th at 10/9c, only on OWN.

First Look: Plenty of Love to Go Around
At its core, polyamory says loving multiple people is natural. While it may seem extreme to many, half a million American families believe there is more than enough love to go around in their committed non-monogamous relationships.

Update: A new 3-minute trailer features the 11-year old of one of the families:

Meet Colleen. She is an 11-year-old girl living with a polyamorous family -- specifically, her mother, her stepfather and her mother's boyfriend. The family opens up to Lisa Ling about their lifestyle and how they explain polyamory to Colleen.

Just wow.

If it doesn't display here yet, you can watch it here instead.

The show will re-air at least three times. Schedule. Channel finder.

See my previous post about the show for lots more on its genesis, its people, and how they think the filming went.

This indeed looks unbelievably respectful. I admire those people so much for being this brave.

Yaaaaaaay for the phrase "committed non-monogamy." I've had too many conversations lately that parallel "poly relationships" with "committed" relationships and it's really a buncha BS.
