The article reports on the appeal of TV One to target 25-54 African-American viewers with original fare that offers stories about familiar personalities in the U.S. Toni Judkins, vice president of TV One, states that there are several African-American contributions that have been made in the entertainment but are overlooked or scarcely included. It notes that the network's latest nostalgia-themed reality offering is "Life After," which works with the actors rather than around them.
