This hour-long series takes a humorous look at radio personality, host and stand-up comedian Rickey Smiley's hectic life as he manages his career, single fatherhood and personal life.
Rickey Smiley For Real is a voyeuristic view into what makes Smiley a successful media mogul in radio, comedy and television, as well as captures the syndicated host as he juggles two families - one at home and the other at work.
Throughout the season, get a sneak peek at Smiley's most important role - fatherhood - as he keeps his head above water with an untraditional schedule and lifestyle.

Splitting his time between Atlanta and Birmingham, as well as his struggle to find work-life balance while trying to maintain a love life will be a central focus of the series.
As a notorious bachelor, viewers will see him get real about romance.
Infusing his brand of comedy into every situation, Rickey Smiley For Real also introduces viewers to his four children - sons Brandon and Malik and daughters D'Essence and Aaryn - as well as his extended family of co-workers, colleagues and friends.
There's his nephew Craig, live-in assistant Miss Pat, personal assistant Angie, business consultant Bruce Demps, childhood friend and family lawyer Nikita Blockton, radio co-hosts Da Brat, Gary With Da Tea, Headkrack, Rock T and Juicy, and radio show producers Beyonce and Hollywood.
