Hollywoodnews.com: We knew high-profile media opportunities would follow NBA superstar Carmelo Anthony now that he’ll be playing for the New York Knicks. We just didn’t realize how quickly those opportunities would come to fruition.
VH1 announced this morning that ‘Melo and his wife, La La Vazquez, will appear in the new reality series “La La’s Full Court Life” (the working title for now).
The series will begin in August, running for 10 episodes. It will continue 30 minute docu-series, which began filming in January, will continue from where the couple’s wedding special, “La La’s Full Court Wedding” left off, and will follow La La and ‘Melo as they prepare for their sudden move to New York City.
From the release:
The wedding may be over but the fun is just beginning for La La. With the sudden news that her husband is being traded to the New York Knicks, La La will deal with new adventures in matrimony and parenthood as she prepares to move back home to New York City. Along the way, viewers will also see La La juggle her busy acting and television hosting career and seek advice from some of her famous friends, including 50 Cent, Kelly Rowland, Trina and Serena Williams to name a few.
“Viewers connect with La La because despite the fairy tale wedding and NBA star husband, she is a real, down to Earth, hardworking woman who stays true to herself,” said Jeff Olde, EVP, Original Programming and Production, VH1. “The best thing about the new series is that while pursuing and realizing her dreams, La La gets to take us back to her home in New York, where her story began.”
La La Vazquez also will also be participating in a live chat with VH1 on Twitter during the 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. encore broadcasts of “La La’s Full Court Wedding” on Sunday, Feb. 27. Viewers can join by following @LaLa and @VH1, and via the hashtag #FullCourtWedding.
