MTV2 GIVES VIEWERS A BETTER WAY TO START THE DAY: MORNINGS WITH “MARTIN” WEEKDAYS FROM 9AM-12PM ET/PT

WAZZUP?! Waking up just got easier and whole lot funnier as MTV2 gets to steppin’ with the iconic sitcom, “Martin,” each weekday morning beginning on Monday, February 21, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. To kick off the debut of “Martin,” MTV2 will air an all-day marathon from 1:30-11 p.m. ET/PT on Sunday, February 20.

Whether he’s on the job as a DJ at WZUP or hanging with family and friends in his apartment, the show, set in Detroit, followed the comedic daily life of title character Martin Payne, played by Martin Lawrence. Martin’s antics – for better or worse – were played out with his girlfriend Gina (Tisha Campbell-Martin), Gina’s best friend, Pam (Tichina Arnold) and his two best friends Tommy (Thomas Mikal Ford) and Cole (Carl Anthony Payne II).

The series featured some of today’s biggest stars early in their careers, such as Tracy Morgan as Hustle Man, Snoop Dogg and Halle Berry and featured the many other sides of Martin as he portrayed numerous unforgettable characters. Among them there was Sheneneh Jenkins, Martin’s wacky neighbor and her “How y’all doing;” Mama Payne, Martin’s mother; Otis, the security guard; Roscoe, the smart-mouthed, 10-year-old; plus many others.

Joining “Mornings with Martin” will be some of the biggest names from music, sports and entertainment – from CeeLo Green and Carmelo Anthony, to Flo Rida, Brendan T. Jackson and even Martin Lawrence – as they share their memories of the show during breaks. Each day will also include a Q&A element to test die-hard fans to see how well they really know the show.

“Martin,” which ran on FOX for five seasons, was one of the highest-rated shows on the network at the time and took home a People’s Choice Award for Favorite New TV Comedy Series and won the NAACP Image Award several times for Outstanding Comedy Series. Now, with the release of “Big Mammas: Like Father, Like Son” and the upcoming movie, “Skank Robbers,” in which he reprises Sheneneh, the “Martin” debut on MTV2 is the perfect way for viewers to get a daily dose of the hit show that made Martin Lawrence a household name.

MTV2 is a man’s best friend, available in nearly 80 million homes and with the highest concentration of males 12-24 and 12-34 on TV today. A vibrant mix of music, lifestyle and action sports programming, MTV2 has reflected the habits and behavior of young people since its launch in 1996. MTV2 is part of MTV Networks, a unit of Viacom, one of the world’s leading creators of programming and content across all media platforms.
