Starting its 11th season, the TV One series will now air on Sunday nights.

The 11th season of TV One's popular series Unsung will premiere with Wyclef Jean and Jagged Edge starring in a double-feature kickoff. The critically-acclaimed show will also begin airing in a new Sunday time slot.

Unsung’s forthcoming season will launch with a profile of Jean on July 9 at 9 p.m. ET. Then the Jagged Edge episode will follow at 10 p.m. ET. Subsequent episodes of the docu-series -- featuring Marvin Sapp (July 16), Switch (July 23), the Dramatics (July 30), Shanice (Aug. 6) and Ice-T (Aug. 13) -- will be broadcast each succeeding Sunday at 10 p.m. ET.

“From classic R&B to hip-hop and gospel, Unsung is known for offering music lovers an in-depth behind-the-scenes views into the lives of their favorite performers,” said TV president Brad Siegel in a statement announcing the coming season. “We are moving the series to Sunday nights to allow more of our viewers a chance to wind down their summer weekends with an evening of inspiring music to take you down memory lane.”

Unsung, narrated by actor Gary Anthony Williams, has profiled a diverse artist lineup that includes Xscape, Donny Hathaway, DeBarge, the Clark Sisters and Gil Scott-Heron. Check out the 11th season promo clip:
