TV Land's "The Soul Man" is an original comedy series starring Cedric the Entertainer.

Created by Cedric and "Hot in Cleveland" creator Suzanne Martin, the sitcom revolves around Cedric's character, Reverend Boyce "The Voice" Ballentine, an R&B superstar-turned-minister who takes over as preacher of his father's church. Niecy Nash ("Reno 911") also stars as the reverend's 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.

Cedric and Martin serve as executive producers for "The Soul Man," along with Eric Rhone and Emmy Award-winner Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner of Hazy Mills Productions. Keith Cox and Larry W. Jones are executive producers for TV Land. The series is filmed in front of a live studio audience.
