For Peete's Sake

OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced today a comedic, dramatic and highly intimate docu-series, For Peete's Sake (working title), following the lives of husband and wife duo Holly Robinson Peete and Rodney Peete as they juggle complicated career choices with their bustling family life. The Peete's new series joins OWN's popular Saturday night lineup. OWN is Saturday night's #2 network on all of television for African-American women and year-to-date features the top three original series on television for African-American women (Welcome to Sweetie Pie's, Raising Whitley and 2 Fat 2 Fly). In 2014, OWN had the top five original series on ad-supported cable for African-American women (Welcome to Sweetie Pie's, Iyanla: Fix My Life, Deion's Family Playbook, Six Little McGhees and Raising Whitley). 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 went on to star in Hangin' with Mr. Cooper), 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.
