What do you do when your life hits rock bottom and you need to find a way to support your family? Well, if you ask Jeremy, you move to Georgia to ‘help’ your grandfather. Season two deals with Jeremy’s arrest and how the family comes together to free him. Of course, there’s the guaranteed confusion, drama and a whole lot of comedy that you’ve come to expect from Tyler Perry’s creations. Season two starts on Friday, 4 June at 20:30 CAT on BET, DStv Channel 129.
In case the name didn’t give it away, this shows features the classic partner switcheroo that seeks to put relationships to the test. To turn up the heat, two couples who don’t know one another from a bar of soap need to switch partners, cook up a storm and rediscover not only themselves but what exactly makes them work as a couple. At the end of the day, the couples regroup and share their experiences – and hopefully learn something from the whole ordeal. Follow the drama every Tuesday at 20:30 CAT on HONEY, DStv Channel 173.
