Cedric The Entertainer & Niecy Nash Team Up In TV Land’s “The Soul Man”, Premiers June 20th [Video]


Comedians Cedric “The Entertainer” and Niecy Nash team up in new sitcom “The Soul Man” on June 20 on TV Land. 

“The Soul Man” is a spin-off of “Hot in Cleveland” and revolves around R&B superstar-turned-minister Reverend Boyce “The Voice” Ballentine (played by Cedric) who was living the “high life” in Las Vegas at the top of the music charts (see the video for his 80’s hit, “Sex Wichoo” below) when he gets the calling to go from soul singer to soul saver.

Now the famed singer will have to relocate to St. Louis with his wife, Lolli (Nash) and his daughter, Lyric (Jazz Raycole) to take over the preaching duties in his father’s church. Of course his family is not exactly eager to give up the fabulous superstar life for a more humble one.

Recent guest stars have included: Anthony Anderson, Yvette Nicole Brown, Sherri Shepherd, Trina and Tamar Braxton, Kim Coles, Cedric Yarborough and recently added, Cee Lo Green.
