Tamar and Vince will follow aspiring pop star Tamar Braxton, the younger sister of R&B singer Toni Braxton, and her music producer husband Vincent Herbert as they pursue their respective careers in the music industry and make lifestyle adjustments following Vince’s health scare. Production will begin in March.

“Tamar & Vince is a great addition to WE tv’s schedule, especially as we expand into a third night of original programming catering to the underserved audience of African-American women who love Braxton Family Values,” said Kim Martin, WE tv’s president & GM in a statement. “Tamar is a huge part of what’s made that show such a success; she is completely over the top.”
