‘Martin’ Reunion: BET+ Drops First-Look Trailer And It’s Dedicated To Tommy
“Martin” reunion trailer has officially dropped.
BET plus released a preview trailer on Monday (June 6), for the upcoming special Martin: The Reunion, which comes amid the 30-year anniversary of the famed sitcom hitting the air.
The 90-minute special, which is hosted by comic Affion Crockett, features original cast members Martin Lawrence, 57, Tisha Campbell, 53, Tichina Arnold, 52, and Carl Anthony Payne II, 53, on the set of the hit show, which ran from 1992-1997.
Next Thursday (June 16), the special will air exclusively on BET+, 30 years after the hit sitcom made its debut. Lawrence was hands-on with this production, serving as an executive producer through his company Run Tel Dat Entertainment.
Thomas Mikal Ford was the actor who played the role of “Tommy.” Ford died in 2016, reportedly due to a ruptured abdominal aneurysm. On the show, Tommy’s character was known as the smooth yet unemployed friend.
The set for the reunion is a remake of Martin’s house where the cast will welcome special guests including Snoop Dogg and Tommy Davidson, who were special guests in the original series, among others.
The special will include interviews with the cast, original directors, musical performances, and behind-the-scenes commentary on the importance and impact of the show.
