‘Britney’ guy may get TV gig

YouTube sensation inks deal with 44 Blue

The “Leave Britney Alone” guy could be getting his own TV show.

Reality shingle 44 Blue Prods. has inked a development deal with Chris Crocker, the Internet superstar whose tear-filled defense of Britney Spears has generated nearly 8 million hits on YouTube in just one week.

Plan is to develop a docusoap built around Crocker, a 19-year-old who lives with his grandparents in Tennessee. Even before the Britney clip, Crocker had developed a large Net audience via numerous video performances posted on MySpace.com.

“Chris first got on our radar a year ago,” said 44 Blue prexy/co-founder Rasha Drachkovitch, who said he wants to develop a show that plays to Crocker’s strengths.

“It’s going to pretty much be the ‘Chris Crocker experience,'” he said. “We consider him a rebel character that people will find interesting. He’s going to be a TV star.”

Since posting “Leave Britney Alone,” Crocker has become a darling of the mainstream media, appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and inspiring countless spoofs, including one from actor Seth Green (“Robot Chicken”).
