TLC Orders Pete Rose Reality Series
Major League Baseball’s all-time hit leader is hoping for one more this time in the form of a TV show. TLC has begun production on a reality series starring Pete Rose, the polarizing 17-time All-Star who was banned from his beloved sport for gambling on games while he was a manager for the Cincinnati Reds.
With a working title of Pete Rose and Kiana Kim Family Project, the show will follow the 71-year-old Rose and his thirtysomething model fiancée Kiana Kim, who has posed for Playboy in the past, through their daily lives as they try to blend their families.
A few family members are apprehensive about the relationship. And while Rose is based in Las Vegas, where he signs baseball memorabilia, or is on the road making public appearances, Kim and her two children live in Los Angeles.
The cameras will trail them through such events as Rose taking the family to visit the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, to Kim getting a breast reduction.
TLC is planning to air five episodes of the show later this year.
