TV ONE CELEBRATES BLACK MUSIC MONTH WITH NETWORK PREMIERES OF "ARETHA: FRANKLY SPEAKING" AND "HELLOBEAUTIFUL INTERLUDES LIVE"

New Specials to Join June Slate of Music-Centric Programming Including Original Factual Series, Original Reality Series, Movies and Performance Specials

SILVER SPRING, MD - May 13, 2014 - In recognition of Black Music Month, TV One will roll out a special programming slate of new specials, original factual series, original reality series, movies and performance specials this June. The programming will be anchored by the premiere of the biographical special Aretha: Frankly Speaking and HelloBeautiful Interludes Live: Trey Songz on Saturday, June 21. Additionally, other new episodes of HelloBeautiful Interludes Live will air throughout the month.

Remarked D'Angela Proctor, SVP Programming and Production, TV One, "From the R&B Divas franchise, to award-winning series Unsung and specials such as HelloBeautiful Interludes Live, music and performance is at the core of so many of TV One's most popular programs. Our viewers thrive on getting a behind-the-scenes glance at the lives of their favorite stars past and present, and we are looking to provide even more of the programming they love this Black Music Month."

Aretha: Frankly Speaking, premiering June 21 at 8:00 PM/ET, chronicles the professional and personal life of one of the most revered singers of all time. While Franklin's music topped the charts and became the soundtrack of American culture, she struggled with the reality of being a teen mom, losing her father to a violent home invasion and two failed marriages. Through rarely seen videos and photos, viewers get an insider perspective on the powerful impact Franklin had during the civil rights movement, the women's movement and her influence on Martin Luther King Jr. The one-hour special also features exclusive behind-the-scenes stories of iconic songs like "Respect," "Natural Woman," "Precious Lord" and "Pink Cadillac" as told through Franklin's trusted inner circle, her musical team, and her very own words.

HelloBeautiful Interludes Live: Trey Songz, premiering June 21 at 10:00 PM/ET, will treat viewers to an exclusive performance with Trey Songz from Greystone Manor in Los Angeles. The one-hour special is an intimate, one-of-a-kind performance and interview series showcasing unique in-person performances by some of music's leading artists. Previously profiled artists include John Legend, Alicia Keys and Toni Braxton & Babyface. The series offers private, unscripted conversations about each artist's life, career and relationships as well as the most meaningful "interludes" of his or her life. HelloBeautiful Interludes Live is hosted by Interactive One's Chief Content Officer, Smokey D. Fontaine.
