Channing and co. are producing a burlesque docu-series for A&E.
Channing Tatum has apparently decided to follow the age-old wisdom and do what he knows – namely, a reality programme about a strip club. The as-of-yet-untitled project will be an hour-long docu-series, produced for A&E. According to Variety, it will be centered around Tatum heading into the New Orleans burlesque club Saints and Sinners, which Tatum opened with friend and biz partner Keith Kurtz in 2012.
Tatum is returning to his roots - more or less.
Tatum has plenty of experience in the biz, and he even began his dance career as a stripper, under a pseudonym.
The series will be a 33andOut Prods. and Original Media production and is currently in the development stage. The series’ fate is uncertain at present, but should the show get picked up by A&E, it will join the ranks of such favorites (guilty pleasures still count as favorites) as Duck Dynasty, the Storage Wars franchise and American Hoggers.
The docu-series is just one of Tatum's many projects, but it's still in the planning stage.
Tatum has been keeping quite busy these days and not just with his acting career. The actor is steadily moving into producer duties on several upcoming shows too, and not just his upcoming burlesque series. The reality show announcement follows news that the actor/producer had another show of a vastly different genre.
Tatum and Nick Zano (who was previously best known for his acting in Final Destination) have teamed up to produce the pilot for Nicky – a multi-camera comedy about an ageing man, ready to move out on his own, who is forced to stay behind and take care of his sister. All in all, it’s been a good year for Tatum, whose name just can’t seem to stay out of headlines of late, and for good reasons too!
With two upcoming projects, Tatum has a lot to look forward to in 2014.
