Ready to tackle reality TV! The newly uprooted Los Angeles Rams are ready for their close-ups, as E! launches a new series called Hollywood & Football.
The six-episode unscripted show, premiering this fall, centers on the personal lives of six Rams players as they leave the Midwest and head for Southern California with their families. The Rams have played in St. Louis since the 1995 season, and the team’s return to L.A. marks the first time in 22 years that the nation’s second-largest TV market will have a home team.
Participating in the series are wide receiver Kenny Britt, wife Sabrina and their two kids; offensive lineman Rodger Saffold, wife Asia and their two children; tight end Lance Kendricks and wife Danielle, who recently tied the knot; running back Chase Reynolds, wife Kila and their three little ones; wide receiver Bradley Marquez and pregnant fiancée Melissa; and fullback Cory Harkey, wife Bianca and their newborn.
“We are excited to take viewers inside the exclusive lifestyles of these top athletes and their families as they navigate a new city, new friendships, new schools and the inevitable Hollywood gossip,” says E! exec Jeff Olde in a statement.
“E! has a track record of success with pop-culture programming centered in the world of sports, and this series will capture the off-the-field perspective of one of football’s most anticipated and high-profile events as the Rams return to L.A,” Olde continues.
This will not be the Rams players’ sole brush with fame in the off-season; the team will also be the focus of the upcoming season of HBO’s summer series Hard Knocks. The team begins its gridiron campaign in the Monday Night Football spotlight on September 12 against the San Francisco 49ers.
