Sammy Davis, Jr.

Sammy Davis, Jr—The story of Mr. Entertainment, the most talented and misunderstood superstar of his time. We chronicle his remarkable career, from childhood roots in 20s vaudeville, to fame and acclaim in Vegas, movies, and beyond. A trailblazer for much of his career, opening doors and breaking barriers in clubs, on Broadway, in films and on TV, Sammy D was out-paced by the militant 60s and fell into disregard. But his comeback in the 80s cinched his legendary status as an icon of talent and cool. Interviews include May Britt, Shirley MacLaine, Obba Babatunde, and Savion Glover

Eddie Kendricks



David Ruffin

The raspy and anguished lead voice on mega-its "My Girl," "Ain't Too Proud to Beg," and "I Know (I'm Losing You)," David Ruffin was the center of The Temptations in their peak years. But his expanding ego forced his bandmates to cut ties with him in 1968. And with only one significant solo hit, "My Whole World Ended," Ruffin never again reached the heights he'd enjoyed as the swoon-inducing leader of The Tempts. In private life, David was a talented, self-tortured soul, capable of kindness and generosity along with untempered anger. But drug abuse wore him down in the '70s and '80s, costing him precious opportunities to reunite with friends and former bandmates, and damaging his relationships with those closest to his heart. Less than two years after joining The Temptations onstage for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he was found dead from an apparent drug overdose at the age 50. Now, his family, friends and musical associates come together to help ‘Unsung’ portray the tumultuous life and career of a legendary singer .

Mary Wells

Before The Supremes, Marvin Gaye or The Temptations, Mary Wells was Motown’s reigning star. Signed to the label at age 17, she had instant success with Smokey Robinson songs like “You Beat Me to the Punch”, “Two Lovers” and “My Guy”, making her the first artist to bring Motown a Grammy nomination, and garnering an invitation to tour with The Beatles, at the height of their own success. Then in a stunning move, Mary walked away from the label in a dispute over money just as her career was peaking, the first major artist to leave Motown. Never able to recapture the success she experienced there, her world came crashing down on and off stage, before she ultimately succumbed to throat cancer at the age of 49. Now, Mary’s close friends, music associates and children come together to provide an intimate look at her life and career, detailing the emotional toll of her fall from the top, and her controversial romances with two Womack brothers that drove both families apart. Twenty years after her passing, “Unsung” finally turns back the spotlight on Motown’s forgotten Queen.
