A&E announces a new show:
MC Hammer Heads to A&E:
Rapper and dancer MC Hammer is the latest celebrity to travel the docudrama route in an upcoming non-scripted series on A&E called Hammertime. Currently in production, Hammertime will feature 11 half-hour episodes focusing on the daily lives of MC Hammer, his wife of 23 years and their family of seven (ranging from the ages of 3 to 21). It is expected to air later this year.
This is the first time a reality show goes into the life of a black male celebrity and his family in their huge house. Except for: George Foreman, Snoop Dogg, Coolio, Deion Sanders and Rev Run who once again, started it all.
So if you are a male black celebrity or you are related to one, now is the time to get on TV!
Of all the celebrity/reality/family/not-sitcom sitcoms (don't forget Hulk Hogan, Bruce Jenner, Gene Simmons, the originator Ozzy) I would say MC Hammer is one one guy I would ever think, "What's the deal with that guy? I hope his family is ok."
From the second episode:
Son: Dad, can I have $100.
Hammer: $100? Do you think I'm made of money?
Son: You were.
