From warm-up act to entertainment mogul, Nick Cannon has become an undeniable force within the industry. On Sunday,October 7 at 10/9C, a premiere episode of TV One’s hit auto-biographical series UNCENSORED will feature countless insights from the writer, actor, host and entrepreneur.

Raised on two coasts, Nick Cannon grew up balancing the gangs of San Diego with his father’s ministry in North Carolina. He recognized his call to entertainment at an early age and with the help of his grandfather and father, was able to escape the lure of the streets. While in high-school, Nick Cannon landed a gig as the warm up act for Nickelodeon’s “All That” where he would eventually become a writer and the youngest paid writer in Hollywood’s history. Mentored by Will Smith, he learned the ropes of the music industry while carrying crates for Biz Markie and Jazzy Jeff. Nick Cannon also learned the business aspect of music from his own missteps as an artist while launching and running a record label. He eventually expanded his brand with ventures in writing, producing and hosting for some of the biggest platforms in the industry, including his popular “Wild ‘n Out” show on MTV. Today, he works behind the scenes creating opportunities for comedians and entertainers.

UNCENSORED explores the lives of your favorite personalities as they reveal secrets to their success, obstacles they’ve faced, and how they manage this new world of social media that has helped, but sometimes haunted their careers. The premiere episodes give unprecedented access to stars of film, television, music, and pop culture, including R&B singer K. Michelle, actress Tichina Arnold and actor/comedian Lil Rel Howery as they personally reveal their own stories, in their own words.
