Rev Run's New Show Brings the Family Home for Sunday Suppers

Joseph "Rev Run" Simmons is a master of reinvention. From rap legend of Run-D.M.C., to minister, to reality show icon, Rev Run keeps finding ways to stay relevant in pop culture. His family was launched into the spotlight when Run's House premiered on MTV in 2005. The show ran for six seasons, spawning another family-based story, Rev Run's Renovation, on DIY and HGTV that brought huge ratings to the networks in 2013. Clearly, viewers enjoy watching Rev and wife Justine manage marriage, kids, and making it all work.

Keeping this gravy train rolling, Rev and Justine are starring in another show, this time using the kitchen to bring their now grown-up family back to the home. In Rev Run's Sunday Suppers, the Simmons clan comes together for family meals every Sunday. Each episode features different family members, from son Diggy and daughter Miley to Justine's parents, sister, and friends as they try to settle on traditional recipes, keep Rev healthy, and battle for who's boss of the kitchen.
