A&E is further moving into the trash TV spectrum with the announcement that MC Hammer is getting a reality show based on his life.
J.D. Roth (yes, the former host of game show Funhouse) is the executive producer and describes the show as "similar to an unscripted version of the Huxtable family from “The Cosby Show.” Here’s a dad with five kids, married to the same woman for more than 23 years, living in the same place where he grew up and going to church every Sunday."
The network has agreed to an 11-episode tryout. Hammer's show will of course be known as ... wait for it ... Hammertime.
