TV ONE EXPANDS MONDAY CRIME AND JUSTICE PROGRAMMING BLOCK WITH NEW ORIGINAL FOR MY MAN
SILVER SPRING, MD, MARCH 24, 2015 – Building on the success of its suspenseful Monday night original Fatal Attraction, TV One expands its crime and justice programming with the addition of For My Man, a new program beginning production this week. The one hour true crime series will join TV One’s Monday prime schedule in late summer 2015.
According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), more than 200,000 women in the United States are living behind bars. For My Man features the outrageous and shocking stories of women who have been arrested for a crime they committed in the name of love. From a killing spree across the mid-west to an inside informant at the DEA, these women have no limits as to how far they will go to support their men. These are the stories of the obsessions and weakness that fueled their fall from grace.
“Crime and justice storytelling is of particular interest to the Black community as they are disproportionally impacted,” remarked D’Angela Proctor, Senior Vice President Original Programming and Production for TV One. “We are living in a time where women are among the fastest growing population in prison and we feel it’s important to make their stories known as both a cautionary tale and as a look into the mind of women who are essentially destroyed by love and obsession. Every episode of the series illustrates the horrifying depths some women will go to for the love of their man.”
For My Man is produced by Sirens Media for TV One. Valerie Haselton and Rebecca Toth Dienfenbach serve as Executive Producer and Anne S. Rothwell is Show Runner for the series. Lamar Chase is Producer for TV One. Tia Smith is Executive in Charge of production and D’Angela Proctor serves as Head of Original Programming for the network.
