Channing Tatum is moving into the unscripted biz, setting up an hourlong docuseries with A&E.

The untitled project follows the entertainers of New Orleans burlesque club Saints and Sinners, which Tatum opened with friend and biz partner Keith Kurtz in 2012.

Should the burlesque club docuseries be picked up by A&E, it would join the cabler’s slate of unscripted programs including “Duck Dynasty,” the “Storage Wars” franchise, and “American Hoggers.”

News of Tatum’s reality efforts follow word that the “21 Jump Street” star and Nick Zano have teamed for a multi-cam comedy at CBS.
