Tyrese, Rev Run to ‘School’ Women in New Show
Tyrese and Rev Run are getting their own television show. The two will join forces to bring “man school” to television next year.
The two have been very good friends for quite some time now, and will take to the OWN network to share “everything viewers need to know about men and love,” according to a press release sent to JET.
At the very least, the series will make for good entertainment as the two are often at odds with each other. Ordained minister Rev Run (Joseph Ward Simmons) is 50, married and a father of six. His life is vastly different from Tyrese’s, 36, who is a single father and one of People Magazine’s sexiest men alive.
The “love and relationship experts” will be joined by a prime-time studio audience plus celebrity guests for some no-holds-barred conversation.
Viewers will be able to take to social media 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 prime-time 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.”
It seems like reality television/talk shows make up most of TV programming these days. With the over-saturation of the genre(s), is this a welcoming announcement or yet another show that has been done already? Let us know in the comments!
