On the next "TV One Access," co-host Jamal Munnerlyn and guest co-host Tatyana Ali count down to the 16 sexiest black women alive. "Countdown: The 16 Sexiest Black Women Alive" is an hour-long special produced by TV One's monthly entertainment news program, "TV One Access."

In addition to naming the top list of on-screen sirens, "TV One Access" also gives viewers a look at the women who embody categories such as "Sexiest Athletes," "Sexiest Sense of Style," and "Quintessential Complete Package."

"The women selected as our 16 sexiest black women aren't just pretty faces. Each one of them is uniquely talented, strong-minded and self-assured," says Monique Chenault, Senior Producer, "TV One Access." "Now what could be sexier than that?"

The list ranges from Tyra Banks, who was the first black woman ever to grace the cover of "Sports Illustrated," to Grammy Award-winning artist Alicia Keys. A few surprises include a nod to Presidential hopeful Barack Obama's wife Michelle and "Deja Vu" break-out star Paula Patton. Tune-in to the special as "TV One Access" looks into the careers, history and personal lives of the 16 sexiest black women alive.

The special premieres Sunday, July 6, 2008 (check local listings) on cable's TV One.
