TV One Green Lights “The Rickey Smiley Show”
Syndication One syndicated radio morning personality Rickey Smiley has tasted life on television before-as part of a rotating group of radio hosts who dish on the day’s topics on FOX TV’s “Dish Nation”. Now the syndicated radio host gets to star in a new TV sitcom based on his own complicated life. TV One, a subsidiary of Radio One has just announced its new lineup for the 2012-2-13 season, and “The Rickey Smiley Show,” based on the life of a single man who’s raising four adopted kids while starring in a syndicated radio morning show, is on the schedule. The show is in development with the start date to be announced. In the meantime Smiley’s summer show on FOX, “Dish Nation” has been picked up for a second season.
