"Unsung Hollywood recounts the achievements of some of the most beloved and groundbreaking artists in the African American creative community - all of whom have devoted their lives to making their mark in movies, television, comedy and sports - and in the process, have helped elevate and transform the entertainment experience."

Unsung Hollywood will share rare stories from film, television, comedy and sports stars through clips, archival and contemporary performances, and exclusively shot, behind-the-scenes footage. As with Unsung, Unsung Hollywood also features in-depth personal interviews with the talent as well as their family members, friends, industry associates, fellow entertainers and various cultural commentators.
