DESCRIPTION: (from TV One's press release, July 2013) 2013 NAMIC Vision Award winner for Best Comedy, The Rickey Smiley Show returns to TV One for an all-new second season. Loosely inspired by the real-life experiences and antics of lauded comedian and TV and radio personality Rickey Smiley, the series pulls TV One viewers even deeper into “Rickey's World” this season, introducing two additional alter egos to his already beloved, wacky troupe of trademark personalities. Watch as Rickey Smiley balances his Atlanta-based radio show - a hotbed of office politics, sexual innuendo, social issues, celebrity appearances, and music - with the joys and challenges of raising three children as a single father. Rejoining Smiley for the 13-episode second season is a stellar ensemble cast including Ray J, J. Anthony Brown, Roz Ryan, Jay Lewis ‘Lil JJ', Noree Victoria, Ajiona Alexus, and Gabriel Burgess. The Rickey Smiley Show is produced for TV One by Bobbcat Films.
