Flex Alexander, Shanice to Star in OWN Series

The Oprah Winfrey Network has ordered eight episodes of “Flex & Shanice,” a one-hour documentary series.

The docu-series follows the lives of actor Flex Alexander, his wife, ’90s pop singer Shanice, and their extended family.  After facing career stumbles and a financial blow, the couple and their two children moved into a rental home with their extended family to share costs.

The series will be joining OWN’s Saturday night lineup this fall.

“Saturday nights on OWN have become the place to be for viewers seeking great family entertainment, and we are pleased to share the newest members of our family with our audience,” said Sheri Salata, president of OWN. “Flex, Shanice and their big, loud, loving brood are not unlike many families today who have combined resources in order to get through some tough times. Seeing how their love, laughter, and enduring faith in one another makes even the most challenging of days worthwhile is both entertaining and inspiring. We think our viewers are really going to connect with them.”

Alexander is known for his  TV show “One on One” on the now-defunct UPN, while Shanice recorded the Grammy-nominated song “I Love Your Smile.”

A sneak preview of the series aired on May 31 and was the night’s top cable telecast, non-sports, among African-American woman 18-49 and 25-54.

“Flex & Shanice” is executive produced by Jeff Dyson and Vernon Lynch of Lynch-Dyson Entertainment, as well as Julie Pizzi and Patty Ivins.
