WE tv Green Lights New Original Docu-Series "Sinbad's Family Affair"

Six, One-Hour Episodes Debut Tuesday, April 12 at 10 pm

NEW YORK, NY - February 10, 2011 - WE tv announced today that it has green-lit its next original series, "Sinbad's Family Affair," showcasing the life of comedian Sinbad and his family. Six, one-hour episodes will capture the ups and downs the famous comedian has faced over the years and his tireless climb back to the top of his game. "Sinbad's Family Affair" premieres on Tuesday, April 12 at 10 pm, et/pt, and will air on consecutive Tuesday nights.

"Sinbad's story is one of second chances. It's remarkable and heartwarming, but not without its drama, conflict and chaos," said John Miller, senior vice president, original productions & development, WE tv and Wedding Central. "This is a modern family that's reunited and they're dealing with the emotions and issues that come along with that. It's what viewers will see more of on WE tv, and women will be able to connect with this story and this family, either from their own experiences or those of people in their life."

"Sinbad's inspiring story of career and family is something that everyone can relate to and we look forward to sharing this tale with viewers across the country on April 12," said Leslie Greif, Founder and CEO, Thinkfactory Media. "Our company thrives on creating versatile and high quality entertainment and we couldn't be happier with a partner such as WE tv to bring this series to life."

Fifteen years ago, Sinbad was at the top of his game - hit sitcom, successful talk show, a promising movie career and the perfect family. And then it all went away. TV shows were canceled, the film roles dried up and he and his college sweetheart got divorced. For many people, it would end there... but Sinbad is doing it all over, and this time he's doing it right. He fired his agent, kicked his 30+ person entourage off the payroll and kept his focus on his original passion: stand-up comedy. He remarried his ex-wife, Meredith, and moved back into their original home. Their children, Paige (25) and Royce (22), are working to build their own careers, but they haven't stopped tapping dad for financial support. "Sinbad's Family Affair" shows the humor and drama that fuels this family as they face financial struggles, privacy issues and the perils of living together as a family once again.

"Sinbad's Family Affair" is produced for WE tv by Thinkfactory Media. The series is executive produced by Leslie Greif, Adam Freeman and Adam Reed. Sinbad, Vernetta Jenkins, and Chuck Vinson are co-executive producers. Executive producers for WE tv are John Miller and Kate Farrell.
