    • Synopsis
    • "Mann To Mann" is the story of the Mann sisters, blustery Veronica (Tori Hammond), who insists on being called "Ronnie" and beleaguered Victoria (Lorraine Ansell), who insists on being called "Victoria". When their father, Alfred "Bud" Mann, lapses into a coma, his living will dictates that Victoria, the eldest run Hot Shots - the male strip club that is the family cash cow. Victoria, a scion of rectitude who works at a reputable law firm, is appalled. Her sister Ronnie is incensed. The club should have gone to her - an opinion she maintains despite a past that includes alcoholism, bankruptcy and allegedly, arson. Forced despite her best efforts to helm Hot Shots, Victoria soon finds herself in over her head. Ronnie comes to the rescue and the two are forged into a reluctant partnership. Alternately helping and hindering are Jerry Riggins (Patrick McKenna), the small time talent agent who provides the strippers ... Ty Lennox (Chris Clements form "Catwalk"), a high maintenance feature who would rather dance in "Stomp" on Broadway ... and Billy Broadfoot (Yuk Yuk's Don Kelly), a.k.a. Billy Two Jokes, a native stand up who plays MC. Watch the Mann sisters as they try to "take it all off": familial obligation, dysfunctional behaviour, the cursed and comic compromises of conducting business; struggles that pit Ronnie and Victoria "Mann to Mann".
