TV Land president Larry W. Jones noted, “BET has been a fantastic partner on this series and with Centric now coming on board, we're thrilled that even more viewers will have the opportunity to see the show across multiple Viacom properties. Going live on one network is big enough, but going live on three networks is a true programming event.”
Centric's general manager and executive vice president Paxton Baker called “The Soul Man” a “perfect fit for us, especially given our rich history with Cedric the Entertainer.”
Niecy Nash co-stars in the series about an R&B superstar-turned-minister who relocates from Las Vegas to St. Louis, as he and his wife learn to adjust to their new humble life.
