MTV has greenlighted a new reality series “Run’s House,” produced by Sean “P. Diddy” Combs,’ Bad Boy TV and Russell Simmons, the network announced Monday. Dubbed “television’s first hip-hop reality sitcom,” the series centers on the real-life family of Reverend Run (Joey Simmons) of Run DMC. The series is set to premiere in the fourth quarter of this year.

“While ‘Run’s House’ gives our viewers an inside look at the lives of hip-hop royalty, our audience will also be able to relate to and laugh along with the family,” said Brian Graden, president of entertainment for MTV.
