Once one of the country’s top actor-comedians, Sinbad is now doing a reality series for WE tv. The cable channel has greenlit Sinbad’s Family Affair, a six-episode reality series chronicling the life of the comedian and his family.  The series premieres April 12. “Sinbad’s story is one of second chances,” said WE’s SVP John Miller. “It’s remarkable and heartwarming, but not without its drama, conflict and chaos.”
