Halfhour series to premiere in June
“Law & Order: SVU” regular Ice-T and his wife Coco will be the stars of an unscripted E! series premiering on June 12.“Ice Loves Coco,” which received an eight-episode order, will follow the married life of the rapper-turned-actor and his spouse of 10 years, a model with an online following that fits other E! efforts. The focus is less on anything salacious than the couple’s attempts to balance professional aspirations with their relationship. “Their public personas are larger than life and completely unpredictable, yet what we find is their foundation is a very strong, traditional marriage,” E! entertainment programming prexy Lisa Berger said. The halfhour series has been given a 10:30 p.m. Sunday timeslot, with “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” as a lead-in. Along with the stars, “Ice Loves Coco” is exec produced by Jay James, Carmen Mitcho and Jorge Hinojosa. Comcast Entertainment Studios is producing.
