About The Show (From Tv One’s Website)
“The Rickey Smiley Show is a hilarious and heart-warming sitcom starring comedian and nationally syndicated radio host Rickey Smiley. The show stars the radio personality as Rickey Smiley, a character loosely based on his own life – a popular national personality based in Atlanta, who is the single father to three children.
The show’s stories are derived from Rickey’s attempt to raise his children by himself and still have a personal life, as well as from situations that arise at the radio station, which is a hot bed of office politics, back stabbing, sexual innuendo, social issues, celebrity appearances, music and, of course, humor.
The cast includes J. Anthony Brown as radio station manager Maurice, also known from his earlier rap career as “Mo Sweets;” Ray J. as Rickey’s producer and protégé Kenny; Roz Ryan, as Aunt Sylvia, who lives with the Smileys and tries to keep the household in order; Lil JJ as Rickey’s eldest son Brandon, an 18-year-old gaming devotee, Ajiona Alexus as his 16-year-old daughter De’Anna, who is the princess of the household; Gabriel Burgess, as precocious eight-year-old son Aaron; Noree Victoria, as Rickey’s business manager Simone Renee Jackson; and Demetria McKinney, as his ex-wife Monica.
