Cicely Tyson Lands New OWN Series At 95

Two-time Emmy winner, Cicely Tyson will be a part of “Cherish the Day,” an eight-episode OWN anthology series created and produced by Ava DeVernay. Ms. Tyson plays Xosha Roquemore’s character, Gently, who’s embarking on a relationship with Evan (Alano Miller). The two-night premiere is Feb. 11 and 12 on OWN. ‘Cherish the Day’ story is about their love. It is a deep love story about fully formed human beings who happen to be black,” DuVernay said. The legendary actress said she doesn’t take her staying power for granted. “You know how old I am,” a smiling Tyson, 95, told a TV critics meeting Thursday. “Who in the world lives this long?”
