Plot Synopsis

FOR PEETE'S SAKE is a one-hour reality series that follows Holly Robinson Peete and her husband Rodney, as they balance raising their four kids, running a charity (the HollyRod Foundation) and spending time with Holly's uber-manager mother Dolores. In a household where constant activity and change are the norm, the series celebrates the chaotic, yet loving dynamic of life in this magnetic American family. Whether they're setting up for their next big fundraiser, coaching their kids into lives of their own, or just trying to keep that special spark alive in their marriage, there's never a dull moment with the Peetes. In the series premiere, the Peetes display their knack for getting the most out of life no matter what curveballs might be thrown their way. Holly and Rodney are loving parents to their 17-year-old son RJ who has autism and was told he would never speak. Today, not only can't he stop talking, but he enjoys advocating for special needs children. Meanwhile his twin sister Ryan is trying to decide whether to go to college or jumpstart a career in music. Thirteen-year-old son Robinson caught the athletic gene from his father and would love to follow in his footsteps, but all the latest concussion studies have Holly wishing for a less dangerous choice. Rodney is beginning to feel the aches and pains in retirement, prompting Holly to have him visit a doctor to get tested after so many years playing football. And as a self-proclaimed "black-tress" of a certain age, Holly has struggled in recent years to find acting roles suitable for her and is ready to branch out and develop a lifestyle brand of her own. On Saturday, February 18, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network premiered the second season of FOR PEETE'S SAKE. In the new season, Holly and Rodney find themselves balancing it all amongst troubling headlines highlighting escalating police relations, and deep fears of raising sons Robinson, Roman and RJ in the current climate surface. While RJ, navigating life with autism, was once told by doctors that he would never talk, he is now working, trying to get his driver's permit, and even thinking about moving out some day, prompting the family to explore ways to de-escalate police encounters involving the special needs community with the help of Charles Kinsey, the caretaker of a teenage boy with autism who was shot during an encounter with police. In addition to helping RJ transition from high school into his first job with the Los Angeles Dodgers, they travel to New York to tearfully send daughter Ryan off to college at New York University. With the help of a very opinionated Dolores, Holly and Rodney also prepare to homeschool their two younger sons Robinson and Roman as they continue to tackle the surprises of raising teens. Whether they're advocating for autism awareness, Parkinson's disease or positive social change through the HollyRod Foundation, navigating the trials of raising kids in today's world, or just trying to keep their marriage sexy and successful, there's always something dramatic happening behind the scenes at the Peete's.
OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network premiered the Season 2 finale of FOR PEETE'S SAKE on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT. In the season ender, "Citizen Peete," Holly and Dolores land a meeting with Senator Kamala Harris to talk about how to reform police training in support of the special needs community. Robinson throws a hip-hop charity event for Uncle Matt. Dolores announces she wants to move out.
