In its ever expanding quest to add more original programming to its line-up, VH1 has greenlit six new unscripted series under the “Wild Life” category, a new brand similar in goals to its current “CelebrReality” brand of series’.
Some of the programs include an Irv Gotti Project, which will chronicle the hip hop mogul’s attempt at a comeback. “Man Band”, a series which will re-unite former boy band stars to see if they still have it and “Bridging the Gap”, a series which focuses on pairs of recording artists.
“The breadth of this slate of music-based series illustrates, once again, that VH1 is the only place for adults to go to see the kinds of music and storytelling that speaks only to them,” said Brian Graden, president, entertainment, MTV Networks Music Group.
A few other projects included an untitled series revolving around the L.A. band Whitestarr, a half-hour reality series titled “Rags to Riches” and “Ego Trip’s White Rapper Show”, a series focusing on a search for the nation’s next Eminem.
