From TVWeek.com (linked here), so it’s gotta be true:
A&E Network has ordered new original series “Keyshawn Johnson: Tackling Design.”
The former USC star receiver and current ESPN analyst attempts to make a name for himself as an interior designer, the press release for the 10-episode series says.
The reality show will “follow the day-to-day drama facing” Johnson. Will clients take this former pro athlete seriously as an interior designer?
“Given the pressures and personalities, Johnson’s famous temper is sure to be put to the test,” the press release promises.
“Sports fans are aware of Keyshawn’s formidable skills on the field, but will be completely surprised by his talent as a designer. The fact that he is really trying to get his interior design business off the ground perfectly fits with our real life brand where we capture the real lives of extraordinary people,” said Robert Sharenow, Senior Vice President, Nonfiction and Alternative Programming, A&E.
