Season one of IFC’s Sherman’s Showcase continues with an all-new episode on Wednesday, August 7 at 10pm/9c. On the third episode, “Behind the Charade,” host Morris Day documents the rise, fall and rise of iconic pop star, Charade, from his discovery on Sherman's Showcase through his historic 2007 comeback. Other guest stars this episode include the legendary Quincy Jones, and series, NFL on FOX’s Curt Menefee, musician Sasha Spielberg, Barry Shabaka Henry (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), and executive producer John Legend.
Each episode of Sherman’s Showcase is hosted by Sherman McDaniels (Salahuddin) as he takes viewers through time via music and comedy drawn from the 40-year library of a legendary (but fictional) musical variety show, drawing inspiration from Solid Gold, Soul Train and Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In. Whether it's a questionably-attired funk super group in the 1970s, an up-and-coming MC in the 1980s or an R&B diva from the 1990s, Sherman's Showcase has it all: music, comedy, gameshow segments, political roundtables, commercial parodies, breakout hits destined to climb the charts, a dancing robot and a legendary host who’s been there from the beginning.
Riddle and Salahuddin serve as executive producers on Sherman’s Showcase along with John Legend, Mike Jackson and Ty Stiklorius through their Get Lifted Film Co. (Underground, Jesus Christ Superstar) and Frank Scherma and Jim Bouvet of RadicalMedia (Stan Against Evil, Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes).
