Chocolate News: David Alan Grier TV show Cancelled, No Season Two

16 March 2009 9:34 AM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

It seems that David Alan Grier's Chocolate News is following in the footsteps of D.L. Hughley's CNN news show, D.L. Hughley Breaks the News. After a 10-episode run, the Comedy Central show has been cancelled.

Chocolate News features comedian Grier performing satirical commentary and sketches centered around current events and news stories. The episodes are said to reflect the comic's view of world events, and one of the network's press releases even went so far as to call it a show with an “African-American take on the news."

In truth, the series focuses more on sketch comedy than news stories, with the host playing a variety of characters -- from fictitious rappers to poet Maya Angelou. Series supporting players include Chris Tallman, Tangie Ambrose, Alphonso McAuley, Jordan Peele, Troy Curvey Jr., Paige Diaz, Luenell, Windell Middlebrooks, Janet Varney, and Gary Anthony Williams.
