Only in America can a convicted felon arrested for running a dog fighting ring out of his home land a lucrative reality TV show. This is precisely the deal Philadelphia Eagles Michael Vick inked with BET.
The tentative and overused titled is the ‘Michael Vick Project,’ and will celebrate his comeback to the NFL and delve into his back story which will include his 2007 arrest for running a dog-fighting ring and his 18 month prison sentence.
For viewers who prefer exploiting dogs for bloodsport over companionship, the series is scheduled to air in early 2010.
