Tyrese and Rev RunmOWN today announced a new primetime show from Tyrese Gibson and rapper Rev Run based on their New York Times bestselling Simon & Schuster book “Man-ology.”
Through eight weekly episodes set to debut in early 2016, the longtime friends will share everything viewers need to know about men and love.
Often at odds with each other, ordained minister Rev Run (aka Joseph Ward Simmons) is 50, married and a father of six and grandfather of one, while Tyrese is a 36-year-old single father and one of People Magazine’s sexiest men alive. These two unorthodox “love and relationship experts” will be joined by a primetime studio audience plus celebrity guests in a no-holds-barred relationship throw down. Social media platforms will take center stage galvanizing America to ask Tyrese and Rev Run their most intimate questions about men, relationships, marriage and sex.
“When Rev Run, Tyrese and CBS came to us with the idea of a primetime series we were energized by the chance to bring OWN viewers something fresh and entertainingly real in the ‘love space,’” said Sheri Salata, president, OWN. “We can’t wait to turn them loose – enlightening us all about what makes men tick.”
The as-yet-untitled show is being developed and produced by CBS Television Distribution.
