“Upscale with Prentice Penny”
Premieres Tuesday, March 21 at 10 PM ET/PT on truTV
          Helmed by the noted showrunner, writer and producer Prentice Penny (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Insecure), the unscripted series will embark on a journey to demystify what it takes to live an upscale life, exploring a variety of topics ranging from food and wine to travel and fashion. From buying a better bottle of wine to getting a custom-made suit for less than some off-the-rack options, Upscale with Prentice Penny is about offering viewers ways to live a more elevated lifestyle by unlocking a world that often feels unattainable.

          Penny will be joined on his journey by some famous friends including Adam Pally (The Mindy Project) and Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and will “upscale” a range of topics including travel, the workday, date night, apologies, dressing up, cooking, your sex life, gift giving, summer, home entertainment, health and fitness, and taking a day off.

          In the series premiere, Prentice Penny trades in what he learned about romance during the 90’s R&B era with a little help from Johnny Gill, and finds more practical (and adult) ways to keep his love life exciting.  Instead of reaching for his usual ‘Black Love’ incense, Prentice creates a custom candle scent to evoke a fond memory he shares with his wife. Old pillows and college sheets are replaced with new buttery ones, fit for a king and his queen. Prentice’s sleepwear wardrobe gets a Mad Men-esque upgrade, and he gets schooled on which champagne is perfect to get the fire started.
