David Hasselhoff Gets His Own Reality Show: [ send to a friend ]
A week after announcing that he wouldn't be back on 'America's Got Talent', David Hasselhoff is making his way into the arena of reality TV parenting.
A&E has announced that the half-hour show, which does not yet have a title, will premiere later this year and run for at least 10 episodes.
"The series 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," says the release.
"In between stints on TV, starring roles on Broadway, live performances and business ventures that have taken him worldwide, he is also a single dad, raising two teenage daughters, Taylor-Ann, 19, and Hayley, 17."
"Hayley, an aspiring actress, is the top model for the fashion line Torrid through her contract with Ford Models and Taylor-Ann is a communications major at the University of Arizona. Being a singer has been a dream for both girls."
"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," says Hasselhoff of the venture. "This is their time and I am excited to be a part of it."
By the sounds of it, the show will stay away from the Hoff's struggles with alcoholism and focus on him as the ultimate stage dad.
