“Charlie Hustle’s” getting real for TLC. “Entertainment Weekly” reports baseball-banned retiree Pete Rose will be the subject of a new reality series for the cable network.
Tentatively titled “Pete Rose and Kiana Kim Family Project,” the show will reportedly follow the controversial former baseball star and his thirty something-year-old “Playboy” model fiancée as they live their daily lives under the scrutiny of some family members’ eyes.
Rose was banned from baseball amid accusations that he gambled on the game as a player and manager for the Cincinnati Reds. Still a controversial figure, he says he hopes the show will give him the chance to clear up some of the misconceptions about him.
“Entertainment Weekly” says TLC will air five episodes of the show later this year.
