Charles Mattocks, the actor renowned for his Emmy nominated role in "The Summer of Ben Tyler" with actor James Woods, announces the launch of Season 2 of his acclaimed docuseries ReverseD - scheduled to air on Discovery Life Channel and TLC.
After overwhelming success of the first season of ReverseD and the positive, life-changing effects the experience provided to cast members suffering from diabetes, Mattocks - as Executive Producer and Host - is in full-production mode, accepting partnership request from interested companies and individuals.
ReverseD is the first ever reality documentary TV series which focuses on diabetes. It features five people living with diabetes and captures their struggles and their quest for hope. Mattocks teaches cast members how to change the way they eat, drink, think, exercise and live with diabetes. The show is not just about diabetes, it is about the people that are in desperate need to be REVERSED.
Mattocks passion to produce a critically acclaimed show is fueled by his own story. In 2011, Mattocks was diagnosed with Type II diabetes. Since his diagnosis, he has made it his purpose to save his life and help others suffering from diabetes do the same. As a World Diabetes Advocate, Charles is determined to educate and inspire people around the world with his show, ReverseD.
In Season 2, Mattocks brings top health experts to help guide the participants in their quest for better health. He adds nutritionist and fellow television producer Ward Bond, PhD; cardiologist Chef Dr. Mike Fenster (The Food Shaman); health counselor Lisa Davis, MPH; weight loss expert Dr. Lori Shemek. Serving on the ReverseD Advisory Committee are Nephrologist Dr. Jason Fung and podiatrist Dr. Wilma Hunt-Watts.
Diabetes is already considered a leading U.S. health crisis, affecting a growing number of Americans annually, from young children to seniors: Paula Dean, Tom Hanks, and Halle Berry. With over 380 million people worldwide plagued with diabetes, there are 35 million in America alone and counting, with 189 million walking around that don't know they have diabetes. Equally alarming is the fact that diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death by disease in the United States.
Mattocks has selected SMACK! Media to promote the release of Season 2 and acquire sponsor interests. "I admire SMACK!'s commitment in representing innovative and authentic brands and people that make an impact in the health, fitness, wellness and nutrition markets," said Mattocks.

Media Director of Public Relation[ship]s, Christina Wood.
The lasting health results experienced by Season 1 cast members on ReverseD have been extraordinary … months after production, they have maintained their changes at home and have become advocates for diabetes and better health.
