*TV One welcomes David Mann and Tamela Mann to the network as they embark on a new chapter and give viewers a glimpse into the drama, faith and laughter that will ensure in their new reality series “The Manns.”
The one-hour show premiered April 4, and explores The Manns hilarious and outrageous interactions, their four grown children, eight grandchildren and a slew of friends and extended family that enrich the lives of the high-power couple.
Happily married for nearly three decades, between recording careers, touring, filming and managing their family, The Manns invite viewers inside their day-to-day challenges, successes and the joy that happen behind the scenes.
“We’re not trying to paint a perfect picture that we got the perfect family because we have issues just like everybody else,” Tamela said during a recent media teleconference. “We just handle them a little different, without cutting each other’s throat and going for the gusto on everybody. We want to be able to love and get an understanding through whatever situation.”
David adds, “We just genuinely love each other’s company and it really helps when it’s somebody you work with all day that you like them.”
“And we want the best for each other,” says Mrs. Mann. “One way is we try to out do each other doing for each other. It sounds mushy but nothing goes lacking. All your wants are being met and all your needs are being met as well.”
