TV One gets personal with new series, ‘Uncensored’

February 17, 2018 GMT

From TV One, home of the award-winning entertainment series “Unsung,” comes “Uncensored,” airing at 10 p.m. Sunday.

The network states that the 10-episode semi-autobiographical series gives unprecedented access to stars including LaLa Anthony, Tamar Braxton, Charlemagne Da God, Le’Andria Johnson, NeNe Leakes, Nia Long, Rick Ross and Snoop Dogg as they personally reveal their stories and in the places where their stories unfolded.

The debut episode features breakout star Tiffany Haddish, whose memoir, “The Last Black Unicorn,” has spent eight weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.

“You know, I wrote the book so I don’t have to talk about this s--t!” Haddish shouted during a promo for the new show.

According to TV One, the show, where “no topic is off limits,” is the first project to be green-lighted by general manager Michelle Rice, who also developed the concept.

“’Uncensored’ in an edgier, in-depth docu-series where the subjects get to talk to the audience in first person about the moments in their lives that helped make them who they are today,” Rice said in a statement.

“TV One is about telling authentic stories and this show will chronicle people of influence in pop culture, music and entertainment that captivate people of all ages,” he added.
