*Well that was quick.
Just one day after Carmelo Anthony’s announced trade from the Denver Nuggets to the New York Knicks, VH1 is announcing a new reality series surrounding the NBA star and his TV host wife, La La Vazquez, as they make the transition from Colorado to the Big Apple.
According to the New York Post, the network began filming the couple in January for a show tentatively titled “La La’s Full Court Life,” a follow-up to last fall’s five-episode wedding special, “La La’s Full Court Wedding,” which documented the duo’s July 2010 nuptials.
The new 10-episode series is scheduled to premiere in August.
“Viewers connect with La La because despite the fairy-tale wedding and NBA star husband, she is a real, down-to-earth, hardworking woman who stays true to herself,” Jeff Olde, EVP of Original Programming and Production at VH1, told the Post. “The best thing about the new series is that while pursuing and realizing her dreams, La La gets to take us back to her home in New York, where her story began.”
Anthony is expected to play his first game for the Knicks tonight.
