Rickey Smiley

The new comedy series starring comedian and radio personality Rickey Smiley is produced by Roger Bobb and will premiere on TV One, tonight, September 18, 2012, at 9pm.

Joining Smiley in the cast will be Ray J, J. Anthony Brown, Lil JJ, Roz Ryan, Noree Victoria and Demetria McKinney.

The show will also feature some 10 guest appearances throughout the season, including Fred Hammond, Lisa Ray, Tommy Ford and Terri J. Vaughn.

Details on series plot, and more in the press release below (preview of the series at the bottom of this post):

 - The Rickey Smiley Show, scheduled to premiere on September, 18, 2012 on TV One, will offer an all-star cast which, in addition to the hilarious comedian and popular radio host, includes Ray J, J. Anthony Brown, Lil JJ, Roz Ryan, Noree Victoria and Demetria McKinney.

The Rickey Smiley Show stars the radio personality as Rickey Smiley, a character loosely based on his own life - a popular, local DJ based in Atlanta, who is the single father to three children. The show's stories are derived from Rickey's attempt to raise his children by himself and still have a personal life, as well as from situations that arise at the radio station, which is a hot bed of office politics, back stabbing, sexual innuendo, social issues, celebrity appearances, music and, of course, humor.

The cast includes J. Anthony Brown as radio station manager Maurice, also known from his earlier rap career as "Mo Sweets;" Ray J. as Rickey's producer and protégé Kenny; Roz Ryan, as Aunt Sylvia, who lives with the Smileys and tries to keep the household in order; Lil JJ as Rickey's eldest son Brandon, an 18-year-old gaming devotee, Ajiona Alexus as his 16-year-old daughter De'Anna, who is the princess of the household; Gabriel Burgess, as precocious eight-year-old son Aaron; Noree Victoria, as Rickey's business manager Simone Renee Jackson; and Demetria McKinney, as his ex-wife Monica.

The series is produced for TV One by Bobbcat Films. Executive producers are Roger Bobb, Rickey Smiley, Yolanda Starkes-White and Ward White. Executive in Charge of Production for TV One is Tia Smith.
