There were rumors before about a Michael Vick reality show, but today, some concrete details have emerged. It’s not a reality series, but a documentary series (I suppose there’s a difference), scheduled to air on BET in 2010. From the LA Times:
The tone of Vick’s show, say producers, will be serious and somber as it focuses on his personal struggles since his release, including the strains on his relationships with his fiancÃ©e, Kijafa Frink, and his children. It will also revisit the federal prison in Leavenworth, Kan., where Vick spent 1 1/2 years behind bars and the Virginia property where he ran and financed a dogfighting ring.
“This show can be a blueprint for so many kids,” he said. “I want to show them that things are going to happen, that they’re not going to get through life without dealing with some kind of adversity. I want to show that if they have a fall from grace, this is how they can turn it around. We want this to be a story of hope.”
I’m intrigued. I’m in. I’ll set my DVR for this. I wonder about two things, though.
