The network renewed the show for a sixth season for its stellar coverage of artists that didn’t garner warranted mainstream success – and has included St. Louis natives such as Angela Winbush and Donny Hathaway.
“Unsung” is TV One’s longest running series, and has featured artists that have contributed greatly to pop culture over the years.
“‘Unsung’ continues to be our most popular and recognized original series,” said TV One Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Production Toni Judkins. “While we have now produced multiple seasons of Unsung, it is remarkable that we have no shortage of incredibly talented candidates for new episodes. We’re pleased to share with our viewers more behind-the-scenes stories of these artists and continue to celebrate the rich heritage of Black music.”
“Unsung” is narrated by actor Gary Anthony Williams, and is executive-produced by Arthur Smith, Kent Weed and Frank Sinton of A. Smith & Co. Productions for TV One. Mark Rowland is Co-Executive Producer. Executive in charge of production for TV One is Jubba Seyyid.
