Roger Bobb Preps ‘Mann & Wife’ As A Black ‘Brady Bunch Like Sitcom’ Starring David & Tamela Mann!
Here is an EXCLUSIVE interview with Executive Producer Roger Bobb (formerly of Tyler Perry’s Production Company), who has produced several films and television shows for TV One and the UP TV Network just to name a few. If you are not aware of who he is or his work, Bobb is probably best known for his new television show on TV One, The Rickey Smiley Show, which became the most successful show on the network.
Anyway Bobb has produced several films recently including the film titled In The Meantime which won the coveted GMC Faith and Family Screenplay Competition at the American Black Film Festival in 2012. The film starred Kali Hawk, Darrin Dewitt Henson, Terri J. Vaughn, Tamela Mann and David Mann just to name a few. The film is about a bride-to-be who gives her fiancé “creative” freedom before their wedding day, but ends up finding faith and the meaning of true love in the meantime, during which they’ve agreed to take nine months off to discover themselves and if it is indeed true love, they’ll show up on the wedding day, no questions asked.
During our discussion with Bobb he mentions this film and he also drops the bomb on us that he is planning on turning it into a musical! He even hints that since he has worked with Musiq Soulchild and since he knows Michelle Williams he might be able to add them in the film!
But it doesn’t stop there; Bobb also drops the news that he is now shopping a sitcom titled Mann & Wife starring David and Tamela Mann to the networks (and will probably land on TV One), and he told us that the new comedy show is best compared to a black version of The Brady Bunch.
