EXCLUSIVE: Twelve years after their sitcom Sister, Sister ended its run on ABC, identical twin sisters Tia and Tamera Mowry are headlining another series together. The Style Network has given a six-episode order to Tia & Tamera Take 2, a docu-series about the current lives of the former child stars, with Tia going through her first pregnancy and Tamera planning her wedding. The series, which will premiere in late summer, stems from the Tia & Tamera Take 2 reality special the network aired in July. “The feedback from their special on Style last year was incredibly positive and showed us how much our viewers identify with these women, their humor and optimistic outlook on life and their daily journey to balance successful professional pursuits with their equally important personal and social lives,” said Style president Salaam Coleman Smith.
Tia & Tamera Take 2 is produced by Good Clean Fun (Harry Loves Lisa), with Jason Carbone and Style’s Sarah Weidman executive producing. Tia and Tamera are also exec producing with Tia’s manager Adam Griffin. After starring on Sister, Sister for 5 seasons, Tia and Tamera graduated from Pepperdine University with degrees in psychology. Tia settled down, marrying actor Cory Hardrict, while Tamera remained single until recently getting engaged. Tia is starring on the hit BET comedy The Game, and the two toplined the Lifetime movie Double Wedding last year. Style is coming off its most watched January ever, averaging more than 175,000 viewers in primetime.
