Following the success of their love and relationship book “Manology,” longtime friends Tyrese Gibson and
Rev Run are bringing their advice to television audiences. 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. Social media
platforms will also galvanize America to ask them their most intimate questions about relationships, marriage and sex.
The eight-episode show is developed and produced by CBS Television Distribution in association with Voltron Pictures
and Simmons/Lehman Productions. Eric Pankowski created the show in collaboration with Gibson and Rev Run.
Pankowski is the showrunner/executive producer. Joining him as executive producers are Gibson, Joseph Simmons,
Jerome Martin, Isabella Castro and Michael Lehman. It will debut in early 2016. 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.
“Combining the enormous popularity of Tyrese and Rev Run with engaging topics like love and relationships will
make a very entertaining hour for viewers,” he added.
