VH1 orders Owens series

On the heels of SpikeTV announcing its Dallas Cowboys competition series with Michael Irvin, fellow MTV Networks channel VH1 is getting into business with Terrell Owens.

VH1 will air a docusoap reality series following the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver, his best friends and publicists as they enjoy the NFL off-season.

“We are thrilled to bring such a great athlete, who is one of the biggest names and personalities in all the world of sports to VH1 for a surprising high octane look inside his superstar life off the field,” Jeff Olde, executive vp programming at VH1, said in the release.

The series is untitled, and will launch in the summer. Eight 30-minute episodes have been ordered. The series is executive produced by Evan Prager and Jesse Ignjatovic for Den of Thieves.
