TV ONE TO PRODUCE NEW REALITY SERIES STARRING LISARAYE

-- Beautiful, outspoken actress and First Lady of the Turks and Caicos allows TV One viewers to be there as she returns to Hollywood and moves on with her life --

Pasadena, CA -- She's got the face of a goddess, the bearing of a diva - and she's edgy, blunt, soft and sophisticated all at once. LisaRaye, the beautiful, outspoken star of film and television and First Lady of the Turks and Caicos, is moving forward with her new life, and TV One will be there to capture the unvarnished journey in a new reality series slated to go into production this fall. TV One announced the new series at the summer meeting of the Television Critics Association.

To be filmed in Los Angeles and the Turks and Caicos, the new reality series will follow the star of TV One's All of Us as she works to fully re-establish her critically acclaimed acting career, while balancing a far-flung and complex personal life. The half-hour, eight episode series is slated to premiere in spring 2010.

The chic and elegant lady usually dressed in her trademark white came to Los Angeles from her native Chicago more than a decade ago, and got a taste of stardom and strong reviews in Ice Cube's The Players Club and later leading roles in The Wood, Civil Brand and other films. More TV and film roles followed, including the role of Neesee in the popular sitcom All of Us.

It wasn't until LisaRaye married the Premier of the Turks & Caicos in 2006, however, that she went from living a charmed Hollywood life to the life of a princess� or, rather, the First Lady of a nation. There were mansions, private jets and visits with the Queen of England. There were butlers, maids, servants and, while she never completely gave up the Hollywood casting calls, she had duties to perform as First Lady. But in an instant it was over. Rumors of infidelity and allegations of illegal behavior swirled around her husband and brought trouble to paradise. Confusion, pain and tears followed. . and now there is no marriage, no private jet� and no starring role. . .but LisaRaye is not one to look back, or sit back and feel sorry for herself.

TV One viewers will be able to follow LisaRaye on her journey as she reclaims the life and lifestyle she so loves. In addition to focusing on her acting career, she's got to raise her daughter Kai; keep her incarcerated sister, the rapper Da Brat, in line; take care of her ailing mother, and of course, hold down a little love life of her own� hopefully, with a little help from her celebrity friends.
