From the creators of Hot in Cleveland, The Soul Man revolves around Cedrics character, Reverend Boyce The Voice Ballentine, an R&B superstar-turned-minister who takes over as preacher of his fathers church. Niecy Nash (“Reno 911”) stars as the reverends wife, Lolli. The pilot also features John Beasley (Everwood) as his father, Wesley Jonathan (What I Like About You) as his younger brother, and Jazz Raycole (My Wife and Kids) as his daughter. The character of Reverend Boyce originated on a second season episode of Hot in Cleveland in which Cedric guest-starred. The Soul Man premieres Wednesdays at 10PM/9C starting June 20.
