Cedric The Entertainer & Niecy Nash Star In TV Land's New Series, 'The Soul Man' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

R&B superstar-turned-minister Reverend Boyce “The Voice” Ballentine (Cedric The Entertainer) was living the high life in Las Vegas at the top of the music charts when he got “the calling” and decided to relocate to St. Louis with his family to become preacher in his father’s church. However, his family members - including wife Lolli (Niecy Nash) and daughter Lyric (Jazz Raycole) - are not exactly eager to give up the fabulous superstar life for their new humble one.

The comedy series also stars John Beasley (“Everwood”) as Boyce’s father, Barton, and Wesley Jonathan (“What I Like About You”) as his brother, Stamps. "The Soul Man" premieres Wednesday 10/9c on TV Land.

Check out an exclusive sneak peek of the first episode above.
