Shout! Factory has announced the July 8, 2014 release of The Soul Man: The Complete First Season. Cedric “The Entertainer” (Who Wants To Be A Millionaire) and Niecy Nash (Reno 911) star in The Soul Man, an original sitcom from Suzanne Martin, the creator of Hot in Cleveland. Bonus features include new interviews with the cast and crew, and a music video.
Series co-creator Cedric plays Boyce “The Voice” Ballentine, a chart-topping Las Vegas singer who moves back to St. Louis to preach in his father’s church. Can this superstar-turned-minister go from singing soul to saving souls? Can his family adjust to their new lifestyle? They’re about to find out!
In addition to co-creator Cedric “The Entertainer” and Niecy Nash, The Soul Man also stars John Beasley (Everwood) as Boyce’s father Barton, Wesley Jonathan (What I Like About You) as his younger brother Stamps and Jazz Raycole (My Wife and Kids) as his daughter Lyric. The character of Reverend Boyce originated in an episode of Hot in Cleveland in which Cedric made a guest appearance. Guest stars in The Soul Man: The Complete First Season include Cee Lo Green, Yvette Nicole Brown, Anthony Anderson, Tim Reid, Loretta Devine, Gary Anthony Williams and more.
