Uncensored

Uncensored (TV One) – Premieres 18th February

A 45 minute show where a celebrity is interviewed as they talk about their upbringing, career and the difficulties they encountered along the way.

During the show each segment is started off with a quote taken from the upcoming bit and while the celeb is talking about the subject posed, photos and film clips are run to set the scene. As well as getting the celebs take on things it occasionally has interviews with friends, family and work colleagues to give their take on certain parts of their life.

For what it is, it’s a solid bit of programming that delivers what you expect. Though it would possibly only really be of interest those that know of the person being interviewed.
