Los Angeles Rams Land Reality Show on E! as Pro Football Heads to L.A.

For the first time in over 20 years, pro football is back heading back to Los Angeles — and it didn’t take long for a new reality show to kick off.

E! has greenlit “Hollywood & Football,” a series revolving around the Los Angeles Rams, as the team heads from St. Louis to L.A., Variety has learned.

The NBCUniversal cabler has ordered six hourlong episodes of the show, which is slated to premiere this fall, coinciding with the 2016 NFL season.

“We are excited to take viewers inside the exclusive lifestyles of these top athletes and their families as they navigate a new city, new friendships, new schools and the inevitable Hollywood gossip,” said Jeff Olde, E!’s EVP of programming and development. “E! has a track record of success with pop culture programming centered in the world of sports, and this series will capture the off the field perspective of one of football’s most anticipated and high profile events as the Rams return to L.A.”

The Rams-centric series joins a slew of E! series set in the sports world, including “Total Divas,” which follows the WWE female wrestlers known as Divas, and “WAGS,” which stands for Wives and Girlfriends of Sports. Both of those franchises are proven successes for the cabler with five seasons of “Total Divas” and a spinoff ordered for “WAGS,” so “Hollywood & Football” should be a seamless fit on the schedule, perhaps also bringing in more male viewers.

For the Rams, “Hollywood & Football” is the second show that will feature that team as it moves back to L.A., following HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” which will center around the Los Angeles Rams in the upcoming season this summer.

Meet the players and their families who will be featured on the series:

Kenny, a 27-year-old wide receiver, will be moving to Los Angeles with his wife, Sabrina, and their children, 5-year-old daughter, Ava, and 8-month-old son Kenzo.  No strangers to the L.A area, the Britts have spent the past few off-seasons in Westwood, but have decided to put down roots in Calabasas where they recently purchased a home.

Rodger & Asia Saffold 

St. Louis has been home for Rodger since he was drafted as an offensive lineman in 2010.  Since then, he married his wife Asia and together they have a 3-year-old daughter, Aaliyah, and a 1-year-old son, Price.

Lance & Danielle Kendricks 

Lance is a 28-year-old tight end returning for his sixth season with the Rams. He will be moving to Los Angeles with his wife Danielle, whom he recently married.

Chase & Kila Reynolds 

Chase, a 28-year-old running back, and his wife, Kila, are high school sweethearts and will be renewing their vows on their upcoming 10 year anniversary. They’ll be moving to Los Angeles with their three kids, Talen (9), Peyton (5) and Tenley (1).

Bradley Marquez & Melissa Hernandez 

Bradley, a 23-year-old wide receiver will be moving to Los Angeles with his pregnant fiancée, Melissa. He will be starting his second season with the Rams.

Cory & Bianca Harkey

These high school sweethearts are L.A. natives, who recently welcomed their first child together. Cory is a tough guy on the field but how he will handle changing diapers, feeding a newborn and all-night crying sessions remains to be seen.
