Just like Justin Timberlake brought sexy back, Hill Harper is bringing back spoken word … with a little help from Lexus.
On the heels of a very successful run with the Lexus Listening Lounge, the luxury car brand is now poised to spark the resurgence of the spoken word with a new TV show called Verses & Flow.
Clearly a tongue-in-cheek play off the title of the popular Terrence Howard movie Hustle & Flow, this 30-minute variety show will feature musical performances as well as cyphers by some of the most talented spoken word artists in the country.
Accomplished actor, author, and hotelier Hill Harper will introduce each segment of the show, which will include a musical performance and two featured poets.
TV One, which is targeted to African-American adults, provides a wide range of television programming. The network airs shows that represent the African-American lifestyle including documentaries, movies, and live concerts. In serving as broadcast partner, TV One will help Lexus further its reach into the African-American community.
Supplementing the show, exclusive Verses & Flow content will also be available on Lexus’ portal for African-American lifestyle content, Luxury Awaits.
