Nick Lachey wants his fame live forever. The former Newlyweds star is headed back to reality television, but he won't be the main focus this time. Instead, Nick is putting together a pilot for MTV, which the network describes as a version of the fabulous movie-turned-television-show Fame.
Nick will be the executive producer on the project, which will take place at his high school alma mater, the School for Creative and Performing Arts in Cincinnati.
So, will there be dancing on the tables of the cafeteria and back flips in the schoolyard? Oh yeah.
“The stories and relationships are all set to music that’s organic to what’s going on in the school and also performed by the kids,” an executive at MTV told the Hollywood Reporter. “This is a genre-busting, creative experiment that I’m really excited about.”
I was a HUGE Fame fan, so I am psyched to see if Nick can really pull off the greatness. I'm rooting for him, though. We're all well-aware of how his last foray into reality TV turned out (Hi, Jessica) -- so let's hope he's got better luck this time.
And there's one very important thing Nick needs to keep in mind:
"Fame costs -- and right here is where you start paying -- in sweat."
