Carmelo Anthony’s trade triggers new ‘La La’ series for VH1

La La Vazquez, the wife of NBA star Carmelo Anthony, already had her place in the TV sun thanks to VH1’s “La La’s Full Court Wedding” (above) which documented her betrothal. Anthony’s trade this weekend from Denver to New York has only increased potential interest in her life, and thus wil be born “La La’s Full Court Life,” premiering on VH1 this August.

Melo The halfhour “Full Court Life” has received a 10-episode order from the cabler, taking Vazquez and Anthony from the Rocky Mountains to the Big Apple.

“Viewers connect with La La because despite the fairy-tale wedding and NBA-star husband, she is a real, down-to-earth, hardworking woman who stays true to herself,” VH1 original programming and production EVP Jeff Olde said. “The best thing about the new series is that while pursuing and realizing her dreams, La La gets to take us back to her home in New York, where her story began.”

Cris Abrego is exec producing “Full Court Life” for 51 Minds with Vazquez and Anthony (through their shingle Krossover Entertainment) and The Collective’s Steven Grossman.
