Read This: Fairly Predictable Edition
Good afternoon, everyone. Still agape over President Barack Obama's surprise Nobel Peace Prize win? Here's something somewhat less surprising: Michael Vick is getting his own reality TV show.
Six months ago, Lisa de Moraes reports, Vick's rep swore that the former NFL star wasn't shopping around a reality series about his efforts to clean up his image after doing time for participating in a dog fighting ring. But! In a press release, BET says it has picked up a reality series about just that:
The eight-part series "chronicles the trials, tribulations and triumphs of NFL star Michael Vick," the Viacom-owned cable network says in a news release it plans to put out Friday, a copy of which was obtained by The TV Column.
But: "The producers and BET, however, insist it's a 'docu-series' rather than a 'reality series.'" Oh! Well, good to know.
