It looks as if ex-NFL’er Deion Sanders and his well-known movie executive girlfriend, Tracy E. Edmonds, are enroute to positioning themselves to be the next ‘hot’ couple on non-scripted TV. This week, Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network announced some of it’s new shows for 2014. And to our surprise, guess who has landed his own show? Deion Sanders of course! The show is tentatively titled ‘It’s Prime’s Time‘ and viewers will get an inside look at his family, which includes his five children, and girlfriend Tracey. Peep the networks description:
It’s Prime’s Time” (working title) is the hilarious and compelling real life story of Deion Sanders, the football legend, baseball great, broadcaster, Hall of Famer, international superstar, businessman, educator and father, as he strives to keep all the facets of his complicated, crazy and chaotic life in balance and under control. Deion faces the challenges of raising his five children in a household that also includes his mother, her foster children and his aunt and uncle, while guiding the future of Prime Prep Academy, the charter school he created to try to make a lasting impact on the lives of children in underserved areas. He plays the role of father, leader, bread-winner, coach and teacher for everyone around him. And in those rare instances when he gets a little overwhelmed, his girlfriend, producer and businesswoman Tracey Edmonds who has two sons of her own, is there to help pick up the slack. The series is produced by Edmonds Entertainment, Prime Time Media Ventures and Rogue Atlas Productions in association with Lionsgate. Executive producers are Eli Frankel, Tracey E. Edmonds and Deion Sanders.
Reality TV is nothing new for Deion. Back in 2008, he starred in his own show, Deion and Pilar: Prime Time Love, which featured his then-wife, Pilar Sanders. And while we haven’t seen much of Tracey in front of the camera (via reality TV), she has an extensive amount of experience creating both scripted and non-scripted TV and movies.
