David and Tamela Mann, the uber popular acting couple who stole America’s hearts in Tyler Perry movies have a new show. The power couple previewed their series pilot at the 35th Annual Stellar Awards on March 28, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Blacks in Hollywood was sent photos, quotes and video files to embed about the event to publish on our website.
The conflict was immediately recognized by our staff because the original Man and Wife TV show starred big-time deejay, Fatman Scoop. He and his wife pitched their show idea to TV networks and it ran briefly on MTV. The irony is the new Mann and Wife, starring David and Tamela, feels similar.
“I truly hate this situation,” said DC Livers, managing editor for BlacksinHollywood.com. “I adore The Manns and Fatman and his show show, Man and Wife. They’ve both always been so kind to me when I’ve been around them. Both are over-the-top funny and deserve they shows to become instant hits. But, someone got there first. Hopefully, this has all been worked out but if it hasn’t this could be the TV version of Marvin Gaye vs. Robin Thicke. The public loves all of the people involved but let’s face it, The Mann’s are part of Tyler Perry’s franchise. It’s a no brainer how the public would decide.”
