Unsung Hollywood is a music documentary series. Unsung Hollywood is a spin-off of the original series, Unsung, which was about various stories behind well-known soul music artists and R&B groups who exploded on to the scene and topped the Billboard music charts, only to later loose their careers to some form of a major crisis. Each episode of Unsung Hollywood focuses primarily on a film or television star, rather than a music star. Each episode of Unsung Hollywood acts like a documentary, with raw footage of the artists and actors, as well as testimonies from insiders, family, friends, and other people who were close to the featured artist or actor. Each episode of Unsung Hollywood will take you through the life of the featured artist or actor, too. Each episode usually will begin with a story about childhood, then taking the viewer through the struggles and successes of the artist or actor, up to the point of success. Each episode will highlight important points in the artist or actors career and discuss what ultimately led to their failure.

Dark, biting satire of the television industry, focusing on an Ivy League educated black writer at a major network. Frustrated that his ideas for a "Cosby Show"-esque take on the black family have been rejected by network brass, he devises an outlandish scheme: reviving the minstrel show. This is the hook: Instead of white actors in black face, the show stars black actors in even blacker face. The show becomes an instant smash, but with the success also come repercussions for all involved.
