TVGN has given a 14-episode series order to “Unusually Thicke,” a reality show centering around Alan Thicke and his family, which is set to premiere at 10 p.m. April 16.
The show is said to be more “Modern Family” than “Keeping up with the Kardashians” and will concentrate on Thicke’s relationship with his younger wife, Tanya and his sarcastic teenage son, Carter. There will also be guest appearances from the “Growing Pains” star’s older son, musician Robin Thicke, as well as his friends David Hasselhoff, Bob Saget, John Stamos, Magic Johnson, Wayne Gretzky, Bill Maher and Tom Green.
“‘Unusually Thicke’ combines my two favorite things: family… and laughing at my family,” remarked Thicke. “This series is my foray into the ‘reality-ish’ television world where viewers will meet the lovable, unpredictable, and often challenging people who live with the real Jason Seaver. We take our relatable real-life stories and blow them up to amuse and amaze, tossing in a handful of celebrity friends along the way. Please come aboard and enjoy the ride!”
