OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network docu-series, Flex & Shanice, following actor and comedian Flex Alexander (“One on One”), ’90s pop singer Shanice (“I Love Your Smile”) and their extended family all living together under one roof will premiere Saturday, November 1 at 10 pm ET/PT.
From the outside looking in, Flex and Shanice are living the dream – they are beautiful celebrities with a long-standing marriage, gorgeous kids and a lovely home in suburbia. But what this fairytale couple has been hiding from the world is that they have been teetering on the edge of financial ruin for the past five years. So they moved their hilarious extended family in to help make ends meet, but nine people under one roof can add just as much stress as it relieves.
In the series premiere, Flex procrastinates launching his stand-up comedy comeback after more than 20 years. Shanice takes matters into her own hands by booking him a last-minute comedy gig, while also cooking up a scheme to breathe new life into her career.
