Mary Mary fans will soon get the chance to see how members of the successful gospel duo balance it all, thanks to a new reality series set to premiere on AMC Network’s WE tv.
Tentatively titled “Mary Mary,” the hour-long series will show how sisters Erica and Tina Campbell manage their careers and families.
The sisters’ husbands also come along for the ride. Viewers will see how Erica and her husband Warryn prepare for the birth of their third child and how Tina and husband Teddy raise a blended family of four. On top of it all, the sisters also have to deal with the drama of their large extended family and their parents.
The new show is part of the network’s strategy to launch a third night of programming dedicated to an urban audience.
“`Mary Mary’ is a great fit for WE tv. The series speaks to our programming strategy of producing stories that feature every kind of family and all kinds of drama,” Kim Martin, the network’s president and general manager, said in a statement. “Erica and Tina are modern women balancing careers and family and doing it in the spotlight. Their issues are the same as so many women today, and this show will capture the entertaining ups and downs of life that they face on a daily basis.”
The show will debut March 29 with the first of eight episodes on WE tv.
Earlier this month, the network launched season two of the Tony Braxton reality show “Braxton Family Values.” According to a WE tv news release, the show ranked number one among basic cable top telecasts for women 18-34. Additionally, the series ranked as the number one show among African-American viewers during primetime for all key women and adult groups.
