There was a ton of hype early this summer around they’ve struck media whore gold: a reality show.
Roy Bank confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that he will be producing the currently untitled show with his new company, Banca Studio. Bank was previously President of Television at Merv Griffin Entertainment. Before that he was executive producer of Mark Burnett Productions’ Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader.
Granted, there’s still no deal with a specific network to air the show, but let’s face it: this is the sort of creep show that TLC and E! and VH1 will fight to air. Although I have to admit, I’m mildly intrigued to see a 50-plus dude make out with a 17-year-old. I mean, think about it. You can’t even find that in porn. And there’s porn for everything. Believe me, I’ve looked.
(Here’s a “Good Morning America” interview from this summer that is in no way creepy. Totally normal.)
