Posted Aug. 8, 2007 – Deion "Prime Time" Sanders is high-stepping into the reality TV zone with a new show on the Oxygen network.
The former pro athlete, the only dude to play in a Super Bowl and a World Series, brings his beautiful wife, Pilar, and their five kids along for the ride as the cameras follow their lives in the small town of Proper, Texas. Population: 2,000.

Tentatively titled "Deion and Pilar Sanders: Prime Time Love," it's expected to be funny, with city girl Pilar playing the "fish-out-of-water" role, and dreaming to be a star in her own right. Meanwhile, retired NFL-er Deion, who last played with the Washington Redskins, is aiming to be the stay-at-home dad.
"Deion is hysterical, and Pilar is really funny and adorable and smart, and they just have such great chemistry," she said. "It's such a positive and optimistic look at family life, and they are equal partners. It was perfect for us."
