Tamela Mann and her husband David Mann have announced their new docu-series with TV One.
The couple will embark on a new chapter and give viewers a glimpse into the drama, intrigue, faith and laughter that will ensue in their new reality docu-series called The Manns. The new one-hour show from Entertainment One (eOne) and Bobbcat Films, currently in production in Texas, will join the network schedule in Q2 2017.
“We are excited to have David, Tamela and The Mann family join TV One because they represent the best of R.E.A.L – relatable, engaging, authentic and loving,” said Proctor. “The Manns are a great modern day example of a family that works together, plays together and prays together.”
The Manns have delighted and inspired audiences through a string of Tyler Perry plays and movies, as well as the television series, Meet The Browns and Mann & Wife. The new show will reveal the often hilarious and sometimes controversial interactions between David and Tamela, their four grown children, eight grandchildren and a slew of friends, extended family and other characters that enrich the lives of the entertainment power couple. With recording careers, touring, filming and managing an outrageous family, The Manns often find themselves negotiating from the conference table to the kitchen table while showing viewers the day-to-day challenges, successes and joy that happen behind the scenes with this beloved couple who has been married for 29 years.
UrbanBridgez.com spoke to Tamela in late 2009 and she shared how her and husband David separate personal feelings while working together.
“You know I think we’ve learned, we’ve been married 21 years and we’ve been working together really the whole 20 years. With the music and doing theater and stuff, so we’ve learned when we get to work, it’s work.” Tamela went on to say “Even if we’ve had a disagreement, we’ve learned to go ahead an squash it when we come to work. And there will be times on the set where he will try to coach me and I’ll be like don’t tell me that right now (laughs). We’ve just learned to know when and when not to go into something. Like if we disagree with something, we’ll just say okay. Once we get in the car or back home we’ll talk about it and get a good understanding. We’ve learned to always get an understanding in whatever the situation is.”
