The streets of Hollywood might not have much to do with the swamps of Louisiana, but Leann Rimes and Eddie Cibrian have turned to the producers of A&E’s Duck Dynasty to do their new reality TV show for VH1.
Gurney Productions of Duck Dynasty fame will produce the show, tentatively titled LeAnn and Eddie and set to premiere later this fall or in winter 2014 with six half-hour episodes, VH1 announced on Wednesday.
“Inside the sanctity of their world, [Eddie and LeAnn] are a typical normal modern family,” the press release read.
“A married couple, who both have careers and are also learning how to navigate the co-parenting of Eddie’s two sons.”
“We are really excited to be working together on a unique show that will give you a glimpse into who we really are or better yet, who we’re really not,” LeAnn and Eddie said in a joint statement.
“We’re thrilled to partner with VH1 and The Gurneys [the producers of Duck Dynasty] to put our spin on a project full of love, humor and music.”
Partnering with the Duck Dynasty producers could be a savvy move, as the show has become a reality juggernaut in recent weeks, even topping American Idol back in April.
Tom Calderone, the President of VH1 added, “LeAnn and Eddie are both talented entertainers who have really captured the public’s imagination in the last couple of years, but there is so much more to them than what is in the tabloids.
“This is going to be a really fun show in which we hope to reveal what their lives are really like — from the normalcy of their home life, to what drives them artistically, to the chaos of their celebrity life.”
