*Actor Omari Hardwick has been tapped to host the second season of TV One’s Lexus-sponsored poetry series “Verses & Flow,” which begins filming on June 11 at the Belasco Theater in Downtown Los Angeles. [Scroll down to view a clip.]


This season will be comprised of eight 30-minute weekly shows, with each episode featuring a performance by a music artist as well as performances by three featured poets.

Hardwick, a poet who moved to Los Angeles several years ago to launch an acting career, stated, “Being brought on as the host of ‘Verses & Flow’ feels like I’m the prodigal poet returning home. As a poet who has been blessed with success as a film and TV actor, it’s been easy to forget how much success I have experienced as a poet and how prolific the journey has been. I commend Lexus for creating this platform.”

“Verses & Flow” debuts Friday, Aug. 31 on TV One. Supplementing the television show, exclusive content will be available on Lexus’ portal for African-American content, Luxury Awaits (http://www.luxuryawaits.com).

Hardwick will also be seen in the summer release of “Sparkle,” playing alongside the late Whitney Houston.
