It’s official! Comedian/radio personality Rickey Smiley has landed his own reality show.
Smiley tried his hand at a scripted series based on his life a while back (click HERE if you missed that) but it didn’t do too well, and now he and Roger Bobb are trying again… this time without a ‘script’.
TV One recently announced that Smiley’s show is in production and the hour-long show featuring the syndicated morning show host and stand-up comedian will be titled “Rickey Smiley For Real.”
The new reality show will reportedly follow Smiley as he navigates the “ups” and “downs” of professional demands, single fatherhood, and intimate relationships.
Shooting in Atlanta, Georgia, where he resides during the week, and in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, where he raises his family, Smiley’s struggle to find work-life balance while trying to maintain a love life will be a central focus of the series.
