Niecy Nash and Cedric the Entertainer star in one of the few new TV sitcoms featuring a majority Black cast, “The Soul Man.”
“There were quite a few shows some years ago. Then there was a void, and now with Tyler Perry and all the wonderful work they’re doing at BET — and now TV Land — we’re making a comeback, and I’m happy to be a part of it,” Niecy told S2S. She’s particularly excited about one aspect of Black life that will be portrayed on her series.
“You will see Black love on camera,” said Niecy, who has been married to Jay Tucker for a little more than a year. “I am happy to show Black love on television. A lot of what we see right now is so harsh, especially in the realm of reality shows. So, I’m happy that in my real life, I can give people a snapshot of it, and I’m happy that this wife I’m playing with Cedric…we really do try to portray a couple that loves each other, and I think that it’s good for our kids to see.”
