Holly is best known for her roles in “21 Jump Street” and “Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper,” and Rodney was a star NFL quarterback who dominated the league for 16 years.
Now the couple are making their reality your weekly entertainment as they attempt to balance raising their four kids, running a charity (the HollyRod Foundation) and spending time with Holly’s über-manager mother, 80-year-old Dolores.
The series synopsis reads:
In its premiere season, the Peetes fully display their knack for getting the most out of life no matter what curveballs might be thrown their way. Holly and Rodney are loving parents to their 17-year-old son RJ who has autism and was told he would never speak. Today, not only can’t he stop talking, but he enjoys advocating for special needs children. Meanwhile his twin sister Ryan is trying to decide whether to go to college or jumpstart a career in music. Thirteen-year-old son Robinson caught the athletic gene from his father and would love to follow in his footsteps, but all the latest concussion studies have Holly wishing for a less dangerous choice. Rodney is beginning to feel the aches and pains in retirement, prompting Holly to have him visit a doctor to get tested after so many years playing football. And as a self-proclaimed “black-tress” of a certain age, Holly has struggled in recent years to find acting roles suitable for her and is ready to branch out and develop a lifestyle brand of her own.
The series celebrates the chaotic, yet loving dynamic of life in this magnetic American family.
