OWN will team with actor Tyrese Gibson and hip-hop icon Rev. Run on a new series that will explore the topic of men and love.
The as-yet-titled series will be produced by CBS Television Distribution and will follows on the heels of Gibson and Rev. Run’s best-selling book Man-ology, said network officials. The eight episode weekly series will debut in early 2016.
The show, taped in front of a studio audience, will feature Gibson and Rev. Run along with celebrity guests as they discuss men and relationships, according to the network.
“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 of OWN in a statement. “We can’t wait to turn them loose - enlightening us all about what makes men tick.”
