Cedric The Entertainer and Niecy Nash star in a new comedy on TVLand called The Soulman. Love, love, love the fact that Black family sit-com’s are making a comeback and this one is a hit. I actually believe the chemistry between Cedric and Niecy and the story is original. On the first episode, Cedric sang a little of his “Peanut Butter…NO JAM,” song that you may remember from the uber successful Kings Of Comedy Movie. It’s evident that both he and Niecy are putting their own spin on the script and making it their own!
From the creators of Hot in Cleveland, The Soul Man revolves around Cedrics character, Reverend Boyce The Voice Ballentine, an R&B superstar-turned-minister who takes over as preacher of his fathers church. Niecy Nash (“Reno 911”) stars as the reverends wife, Lolli. The pilot also features John Beasley (Everwood) as his father, Wesley Jonathan (What I Like About You, Roll Bounce) as his younger brother, and Jazz Raycole (My Wife and Kids) as his daughter. The character of Reverend Boyce originated on a second season episode of Hot in Cleveland in which Cedric guest-starred. Watch The Soul Man Wednesdays at 10PM/9C.
