TV One Announces New and Returning Shows for 2012-2013 Season

Kicking off its first upfront season with President and CEO Wonya Lucas at the helm, TV One unveiled ambitious plans to double the amount of original content during the 2012-2013 television year. In a presentation to advertisers at Cipriani, Ms. Lucas said the entertainment network for black adults planned to add 14 new series and specials during the upfront season, including three original sitcoms, two bio doc series that build on the legacy of its award-winning series "Unsung," and nine non-fiction entertainment series.

Included in that star-studded lineup will be "Save My Son," an unscripted series hosted by Dr. Steve Perry that profiles the struggles of African American families to save their sons who have fallen victim to bad influences and bad choices, "Washington Watch with Roland Martin," and "The Ladies of R&B," an hour long series that follows the current lives of R&B singers Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert, Keke Wyatt, Monifah Carter and Syleena Johnson.
