*Real-life husband and wife team David and Tamela Mann will head from reality TV territory back to the sitcom world with “Mann & Wife,” premiering Tuesday (April 7) at 9 p.m. on Bounce TV.
The couple draws inspiration from their real lives to play newlyweds Daniel and Toni Mann. The series follows the second-chance sweethearts as they laugh and love their way through the ups and downs of life as a blended family, each with two children from previous marriages.
Life as they know it is turned inside out when Daniel, a police officer from Atlanta, and Toni, a school teacher from Dallas, meet on a dating site and fall in love. When they decide to marry and Toni moves into Daniel’s house in the Atlanta suburbs, the honeymooners — along with their kids, two from each side — all have to adjust to their new lives together. They also have to deal with David’s overbearing live-in mother (JoMarie Payton) and his jet-setting ex-wife, played by Vivica A. Fox.
Tony Rock co-stars as Daniel’s new partner, and Tiny Lister as Daniel’s Sergeant and boss.
