Holly Robinson Peete is returning to the small screen in a new reality series. Yesterday, OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network announced that they’ve ordered a dramatic and intimate docu-series called “For Peete’s Sake,” starring the former co-host of “The Talk” and her husband Rodney Peete as they juggle complicated career choices with their bustling family life.
According to the press release: “Millions of fans know Holly Robinson Peete as the actress who launched her long-running career starring on the groundbreaking TV series “21 Jump Street,” and Rodney Peete as the popular NFL quarterback and former co-host of Fox Sports’ “The Best Damn Sports Show Period.” But their very public careers reveal just a glimpse of what life is like today for this Hollywood power couple, whose family includes four kids and Holly’s wild-and-crazy mom, Dolores, who at 79 years young is anything but a typical grandma. In a household where constant activity and change are the norm, the series celebrates the chaotic, yet loving dynamic of life in this magnetic American family.”
“Rodney and I couldn’t be more thrilled to call OWN our new TV home. We are excited to share our family’s chaotic bliss and zany journeys with OWN’s loyal and authentic audience,” Peete said of their upcoming series.
The Peete family, which includes Holly’s widowed mom, Dolores, as well as the couple’s four children: twins RJ and Ryan Elizabeth (17), middle son Robinson (13), and the youngest, Roman (10) will join the network’s Saturday night lineup alongside original reality shows “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s,” “Raising Whitley” and “2 Fat 2 Fly.”
