Is anyone surprised by this news? A&E, which made its name so many years ago with World War II documentaries and investigative journalism, has announced that they’ve placed a 10-episode order for a new “docu-series” (that’s A&E chat for “reality show”) starring none other than the original Knight Rider himself, David Hasselhoff!
The yet-unnamed series, set to debut later this year, “will take a behind-the-scenes look into the life of ‘The Hoff’ focusing on his multiple entertainment and business endeavors, as well as his most important role as a single dad trying to help his teenage daughters break into the recording industry.”
“It’s the dream of every parent to be able to help their children succeed,” said Hasselhoff in a statement to the press. “I told the girls that I would help them open the door when they are ready, but they would have to walk through it on their own. This is their time and I am excited to be a part of it by partnering with A&E and FremantleMedia on this new series.”
“David Hasselhoff is an international icon known for his many roles and talents,” said A&E’s Robert Sharenow. “Now for the first time he’s allowing our cameras to see another side of him — as a single father raising two teenage girls — and the day-to-day drama that accompanies the rest of his larger-than-life life.”
So… will you watch?
