The show launched earlier this year as a weekly pod cast on www.manandwife.tv, and recently hit the three million-viewer mark. “One night, when I was in bed talking to Shanda, I realized my own wife was witty, funny and sharp,” Fatman Scoop says. “My manager, Charlie Stettler, loved the concept and brought producer/director and web entrepreneur Alex Lasky on board and Man and Wife was born. Now we want to bring our expertise to an even wider audience and we think MTV offers the perfect way to connect with today’s viewers.” The theme of Man and Wife revolves around discussions of marriage, sex, politics, money and more sex. “Fatman Scoop and Shanda are not only made for each other but are made for television,” says Tony DiSanto, Executive Vice President of MTV Series Development & Animation. “Their hilarious and frank discussions could help usher in a new era of public discourse on everything from sex and sexuality to romance in a committed relationship and bring Scoop and Shanda to an even wider audience.”
