The TV One documentary “Unsung” begins a new season on February 23 with an inside look at R&B quartet Dru Hill. The group will perform their classics on “Unsung Live” immediately following their “Unsung” episode at 11 p.m./10C. Formed in Baltimore, MD, Dru Hill initially consisted of Sisquo, Nokio, Woody and Jazz. The group took the music industry by storm with old school harmonies and effortless charisma. Their debut album produced the singles “Tell Me”, “In My Bed”, “Never Make A Promise”, and “Five Steps.” They also scored with the hits “How Deep Is Your Love” and “These Are The Times.” The group’s popularity received a huge boost with the popularity of Sisquo’s solo material. Despite a plethora of top ten hits, the group was bedeviled by friction with their record label and internal struggles, which lead to the departure of two members. However, Dru Hill continues to forge ahead and remains one of the most beloved singing groups performing today. In this “Unsung”, they discuss their long, and winding journey. The season also includes profiles of several influential artists, including pioneering female rap star Roxanne Shante, singer/actor Christopher Williams, funk band Skyy, Freestyle pioneer Shannon, Grammy Award-winning singer Billy Paul, singer Betty Wright, Grammy winner Al Jarreau and rap ensemble Goodie Mob. “Unsung”, which was nominated for an NAACP Image Award, celebrates the lives and careers of trailblazing artists whose stories have yet to be told. Through first hand accounts, interviews with family  and friends, and archival footage, each episode weaves a tale of the highs and lows of a life in the limelight. “Unsung” is executive produced by Arthur Smith and Frank Sinton along with Mark Rowland and Kysha Mounia. For TV One, Jason Ryan is Executive Producer in Charge of Production, Donyell Kennedy-McCullough is Senior Director of Talent & Casting and Brigitte McCray is Senior Vice President of Original Programming and Production.
