TV One’s “Unsung” series will receive a bit of help from an acting veteran when it expands for the premiere of “Unsung Hollywood” on Wednesday, February 26 at 10pm Eastern.

Blaxploitation film queen Pam Grier will be the first entertainer profiled for the series, which profiles “black artists, entertainers and programming,” according to the network’s programming and production Senior Vice President, D’Angela Proctor.

Narrated by Gary Anthony Williams , “Unsung Hollywood” takes a page from the music-centric “Unsung” series by featuring in-depth personal interviews with profiled celebrities as well as their family members, friends, industry associates, fellow entertainers and various cultural commentators.

The episode featuring Grier will chronicle her rise to stardom in the 1970’s as a black female action star in addition to highlighting her most iconic roles, turbulent child hood, battle with cervical cancer and high profile relationships with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Freddie Prinze, and Richard Pryor.

Upcoming episodes of “Unsung Hollywood” will feature politically charged comic Dick Gregory as well as in-depth stories behind the making (and breaking) of influential films and TV series such as “Cooley High” and “What’s Happening!!”

“Unsung Hollywood” featuring Pam Grier will premiere at the show’s regular timeslot of 10 p.m. Wednesdays on TV One. The following is a list of upcoming episodes for “Unsung Hollywood.”
