Come Together For New Series That Will Premiere On OWN
In a yet-to-be-titled weekly primetime series, the two men will square off in front of a studio audience and celebrity guests in a relationship throw down.
“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.
He added, “Combining the enormous popularity of Tyrese and Rev Run with engaging topics like love and relationships will make a very entertaining hour for viewers.”
The collaboration marks OWN’s first partnership with CBS Corp. for an original production, said Scott Koondel, executive vice president and chief licensing officer for CBS Corp.
