TV One has renewed Reach Media syndicated radio morning star Rickey Smiley‘s sitcom for a second season. The Rickey Smiley Show renewal calls for 26 new episodes-more than doubling last years 10 episodes. In the series loosely based on his life, Smiley plays a popular national radio personality who is a single father trying to balance his family life – including his ex-wife – and career in the spotlight.
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the positive reaction to The Rickey Smiley Show,” says Alfred Liggins, President and CEO, TV One. “The show’s humor and comedic performances have made it a weekly must watch and we’re thrilled to offer it as part of a dynamic slate of original programming that is clearly resonating with audiences.”
