The family, whose reality series “For Peete’s Sake” ran on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN for two seasons, will premiere a new family docuseries for Hallmark in February 2018, titled “Meet the Peetes.”
“We couldn’t be happier to expand our relationship with Holly Robinson Peete and Rodney Peete, whose family values and generosity of spirit are a perfect fit for our network,” said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Network Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. “We’re excited to move into primetime, unscripted programming and we know our viewers will embrace the Peetes’ story and fall in love with them as much as we have.”
The family’s network relocation comes four months after Holly announced on Instagram that OWN had canceled “For Peete’s Sake.”
“My whole family and I couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with Hallmark Channel and everyone at Crown Media Family Networks,” said Holly Robinson Peete in a statement. “Hallmark Channel has always been the top destination for family-driven stories and we’re thrilled to share our next chapter with such an amazing partner.”
“Meet the Peetes” is produced by Tremendous! Entertainment. Cameras will begin rolling this fall.
Below is the show’s official synopsis:
The series will chronicle their hectic lives as they navigate the waters of raising kids, their HollyRod charity and spending time with Holly’s 80-year-old mother Dolores, who moved in with them after retiring from her career as a talent manager. Their daughter Ryan is away at college at New York University while their son with autism RJ, who works for the Los Angeles Dodgers, decides he’s also ready to leave the family nest. On top of that, Holly’s mother Dolores announces she’s ready to move out as well — all of which will mark a period of change for the Peetes.
