TV ONE ANNOUNCES NEW SEASON OF AWARD-WINNING SERIES "UNSUNG" PREMIERING WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 8 PM/ET

Season Premiere of Network's Signature Music Biography Series to Feature Heavy D & the Boyz

SILVER SPRING, MD - October 14, 2013 - TV One will premiere the new season of its NAACP Image Award-winning music biography series Unsung on Wednesday, October 30 at 8PM/ET, with a profile of rap and hip-hop outfit Heavy D & the Boyz. Known for its thorough portraits of singers and music acts whose success or legacy in the industry was cut short due to personal crises and transformative circumstances, Unsung will shed light on the rise-and-fall stories of a new group of artists in each one-hour episode this season.

"A truly unique documentary experience, this series continues to profile wildly gifted acts of the last 30 years, revisiting their career trajectories and unveiling the reasons for their apparent withdrawal from the public eye," said D'Angela Proctor, SVP of Programming and Production for TV One. "With highly personal eyewitness accounts from the artists' families, friends and colleagues, as well as commentary from music industry insiders, we ensure that their stories do not go unsung."

Unsung episodes include:

· WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 8PM/ET - Heavy D & the Boyz

· WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 8PM/ET - Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam

· WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 8PM/ET - Geto Boys

· WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 8PM/ET - The Delfonics

· WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 8PM/ET - CeCe Peniston

Unsung is narrated by Gary Anthony Williams and is executive produced by Arthur Smith, Kent Weed and Frank Sinton of A. Smith & Co. Production for TV One. Mark Rowland is Co-Executive Producer. Executive in charge of production for TV One is Jubba Seyyid and producer for TV One is Lamar Chase.
