TV One has announced that it will premiere the new season of its acclaimed popular music biography series Unsung on Wednesday, October 30 at 8PM/ET, with a profile of hip-hop group Heavy D & the Boyz


Known for its thorough portraits of singers and music acts whose success or legacy in the industry was cut short due to personal crises and transformative circumstances, Unsung will highlight the rise-and-fall stories of a new group of artists in each one-hour episode, this season.

“A truly unique documentary experience, this series continues to profile wildly gifted acts of the last 30 years, revisiting their career trajectories and unveiling the reasons for their apparent withdrawal from the public eye,” said D’Angela Proctor, SVP of Programming and Production for TV One. “With highly personal eyewitness accounts from the artists’ families, friends and colleagues, as well as commentary from music industry insiders, we ensure that their stories do not gounsung.”

Unsung new season episodes include:

  • WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 8PM/ET - Heavy D & the Boyz
  • WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 8PM/ET - Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam
  • WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 8PM/ET - Geto Boys
  • WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 8PM/ET - The Delfonics
  • WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 8PM/ET - CeCe Peniston

Unsung is narrated by Gary Anthony Williams and is executive produced by Arthur Smith, Kent Weed and Frank Sinton of A. Smith & Co. Production for TV One. Mark Rowland is Co-Executive Producer. Executive in charge of production for TV One is Jubba Seyyid and producer for TV One is Lamar Chase.

    I think TV One should do a show called "Dorothy B. Jackson and her Twenty-Seven Cats".

    Any plans to review 5 Stairsteps (Ooh-Child). I understand their lead singer just pasted away. They were big in the 70s.

    Glad Unsung is doing a program on the Delfonics, A truly unsung group is Maze & Frankie Beverly. Hope that's in the works soon.

    Have the quality of these productions gone up or are they still third rate reports?

    Flashback

  • CreoleYaya | October 14, 2013 3:50 PMReply

    This show is a lot like a segment I did for the radio program RadioScope in the 90s called Flasback. I interviewed folks like James Brown, The Temptations, The Time, KC and the Sunshine Band, War and the list goes on. Anybody remember the show?
