RAPPER T.I. GETS REALITY SERIES

 

Rapper T.I. is turning his legal woes into an MTV documentary series.


Cameras will follow the rapper as he performs more than 1,000 of community service before beginning to serve his one-year prison sentence next spring.

 

Cameras already chronicled T.I.’s release from house arrest, and shooting will start in earnest this summer, leading up to his return to jail in early 2009. MTV plans to air the show some time soon after that.

 

The rapper was facing more than four years in jail when he managed to secure the plea deal (which also included a $100,000 fine).  The idea for the show was hatched around the same time.

 

“We began the conversations in the middle of deliberations over what would happen to him,” said Ish’s Michael Hirschorn, who’s exec producing with partner Stella Stolper. “The original idea for the show had him staging a series of interventions in each episode with people in danger. But when we visited him under house arrest, it felt much bigger and more powerful than we anticipated.”

 

The show features T.I. as he speaks to groups about his troubles. “Hopefully the mistakes I’ve made will be a lesson to today’s youth and they won’t go down that same path,” T.I. said.


Show will also document the release this fall of the rapper’s new album, “Paper Trail,” much of which was inspired by his travails over the past year, and the birth of his child.
