The first season of the Bounce TV original series “Mann & Wife” starring David and Tamela Mann was a huge hit for the network, delivering more than 5.7 million total viewers across all platforms, in its first season on the air.
Bounce TV – the nation’s first-ever broadcast television network designed for African American audiences – has announced that it has renewed “Mann & Wife” for a second season, which will debut in the spring of 2016.

“Mann & Wife” features a supporting cast that includes: Vivica A. Fox, portraying Daniel’s ex-wife; Tony Rock, playing Daniel’s new partner on the police force, and JoMarie Payton as Lorraine, Daniel’s overbearing mother.
Series co-creator Roger Bobb (“The Rickey Smiley Show,” “House of Payne”) serves as executive producer and director.
