The Nephew of the late great Bob Marley, Mattocks comes from a very high profile family lineage so it is no surprise that he is taking the Healthcare world by storm. An accomplished Actor, Charles Mattocks notably starred with a pivotal role in “The Summer of Ben Tyler” alongside legends James Woods and Elizabeth McGovern. The movie garnered six nominations during the award season and Variety Magazine declared, “In Charles Mattocks, a star is born’.
As an author, producer, and director, his work has been showcased with appearances on CNN, The Today Show, Dr. Oz, Fox News, Good Morning America, The Talk, The Martha Stewart Show, and numerous media outlets worldwide. Charles’ world changed the minute he was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. As he stared death in the face, he knew he had a larger mission to make changes not only for himself but so many others! He armed himself with education and determination and began to reverse his condition. He documented his process in a provocative documentary,“ The Diabetic You”, which peels back the curtain on the good, the bad, and the ugly of the diabetes epidemic. This film set his advocacy in motion, with Charles ascending to become a Blue Circle Champion for the International Diabetes Association and a published author for the American Diabetes Association.
Charles created, directed, and executive produced “Reversed”, the highly acclaimed diabetes reality docuseries, on Discovery Life Channel. The show received much recognition from both critics and medical professionals and earned a second season pick-up – this time focusing on HIV. He also produced Trial By Fire, about his mother’s rare disease, complex regional pain syndrome. The buzz-worthy success of Reversed inspired the FYI network to continue Charles’ healing quests, so, in January 2020, Charles’ groundbreaking new series, Eight Days, premiered. The series followed the raw ups and downs of five cancer patients as they waged their battle for survival on their journey towards healing. Just as he did in Reversed, Charles guided his patients toward positive outcomes beyond their wildest expectations.
His next projects for 2021 will be another season of “Reversed” and several new shows on some of the most timely medical issues. He is also part of Real Men, Real Talk which broadcasts every Friday evening with 4 other hosts who honestly cover the most important mental, emotional and physical issues that affect men. Not surprisingly, there are lots of women listeners!
Charles’ passion and personality are contagious and have skyrocketed him to unparalleled success with whatever he tackles. Saving the lives of people suffering from chronic illness and inspiring them with his life-changing message, he has become the premier media expert on health and wellness. Charles entertains, educates, inspires, and heals millions with his ahead-of-the-curve creativity and dedication to excellence in television hosting, content creation, and dynamic advocacy. He continues to be a sought after panelist and speaker on the current crisis of diabetes, mental health, (made more timely by COVID-19), and the recent spotlight on systemic racism.
