Network adds reality shows, 'Rock Docs'
VH1 is beefing up its 2008 slate with four new reality shows, two VH1 “Rock Docs” and a “VH1 Storytellers” episode for Snoop Dogg.
The reality skeins include seven half-hour episodes of “The Cho Show,” a nonscripted skein starring standup comedian Margaret Cho, as well as eight episodes of “Luke’s Parental Advisory,” which follows former 2 Live Crew rapper Luther Campbell through the twin challenges of parenting and producing adult videos.
Brooke Hogan, the aspiring pop tart and daughter of Hulk Hogan, will get a reality show of her own, too: VH1 has ordered 10 episodes of “Brooke Hogan Knows Best,” which chronicles Hogan’s move to Miami away from her famously strict dad.
The net will return to the “New York” well yet again, as Tiffany “New York” Pollard’s “We Love New York,” originally spun off of “Flavor of Love,” turns into “New York Goes to Hollywood.” The show has retained Pollard but not the “We Love New York” competition format — instead, “Hollywood” will follow Pollard as she tries to become a professional actress.
The channel will expand its “Rock Docs” series, too: New episodes will include “The Night James Brown Saved Boston” and “Elton John: Me, Myself and I,” two 60-minute programs focusing on the eponymous stars.
