Nelly and Miss Jackson’s relationship is headed to BET.
The rapper’s girlfriend – boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr.’s infamous ex – will be a part of his new reality show set to air on the Viacom-owned cable network, which has also given series orders to shows starring Keyshia Cole (her third for BET), and one featuring Meet the Browns stars David and Tamela Mann.
The untitled Nelly vehicle will focus on the rapper navigating his hip-hop career, fashion business, co-ownership of the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats and the raising of his biological kids and late sister’s children – all while balancing a relationship with Miss Jackson.
The eight hour-long episodes will, as BET says, offer viewers an all-access pass to Nelly’s life. Nelly will executive produce the Entertainment One series alongside Tara Long, John Morayniss, Howie Miller, David Shaye, Kim McKoy and Shanta Conic and co-executive producer J. Erving.
The untitled Cole project, picked up for six half-hour episodes, will follow her ongoing emotional journey as she confronts real-life issues, including her unstable marriage to NBA player Daniel Gibson, her evolving career, motherhood and family struggles. (The previous series, Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is and Keyshia & Daniel: Family First, ran from 2006-08 and in 2012, respectively.)
