Just hours after he was released from Forrest City Correctional Facility in Arkansas, VH1 announced that T.I. will star in a new reality show. The still untitled show will document the emcee’s reacclimation to life on the outside. T.I. will start the show in the halfway house where he is scheduled to serve the remaining month of his sentence, and cameras will follow him into the studio as he begins work on his next album.
“Viewers have always connected with T.I. and we are definitely thrilled to show the next chapter of this incredible artist’s riveting life with this new series,” said Jeff Olde, EVP, Original Programming and Production VH1. “T.I. is such a multitalented artist and actor, and though he has had some setbacks, there is no doubt he will use his considerable talents to get back on top of both the music and film business.”
The first 30-minute episode of the 10-show series will air on December 5 at 10:00 p.m.
