Holly Robinson Peete and Rodney Peete star in the new OWN docu-series “For Peete’s Sake,” which follows the lives of the husband and wife duo, joining the network’s popular Saturday night line up on March 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
The couple is giving viewers an intimate look at their hectic and often-times comical lives as they attempt to balance raising their four kids, running a charity (the HollyRod Foundation), and spending time with Holly’s über-manager mother Dolores who is still wheeling and dealing even as she approaches 80 years young.
In its premiere season, we meet Holly and Rodney, loving parents to their 17-year-old son RJ who has autism and was told he would never speak. Today, not only can he speak, but he enjoys advocating for special needs children. Meanwhile his twin sister Ryan is trying to decide whether to go to college or jumpstart a career in music. Thirteen-year-old son Robinson caught the athletic gene from his father and would love to follow in his footsteps, but all the latest concussion studies have Holly wishing for a less dangerous choice. Rodney is beginning to feel the aches and pains in retirement, prompting Holly to have him visit a doctor to get tested after so many years playing football. And as a self-proclaimed “black-tress” of a certain age, Holly has struggled in recent years to find acting roles suitable for her and is ready to branch out and develop a lifestyle brand of her own.
“For Peete’s Sake” is produced for OWN by Tremendous! Entertainment. Executive producers are Colleen Needles Steward, Shannon Keenan Demers and Andy Meyer from Tremendous! Entertainment as well as John Ferriter, Kyell Thomas, Holly Robinson Peete and Rodney Peete.
