TV Land eyeing George Hamilton docusoap

THR EXCLUSIVE

George Hamilton, reality TV star?

The famously tanned actor is developing a docusoap for TV Land that could be described as a real-life "Two and a Half Men."

Bunim Murray ("The Real World," "Keeping Up With the Kardashians") will produce the show, which chronicles the lives of Hamilton and his older son Ashley and younger son George Thomas. In the show's logline, Hamilton and Ashley are perpetual bachelors who have to grow up when 10-year-old George comes to L.A. to live with them.

Aside from numerous guest appearances, Hamilton's last regular series was the late 1990s NBC sitcom "Jenny.' He also had a recurring role on the 1980s classic "Dynasty."

Best known for running classic sitcoms, TV Land has increasingly invested in reality fare, dipping its toe into the genre last year with the launch of "The Cougar" and "High School Reunion."

The network recently launched its first original sitcom with "Hot in Cleveland," which set a record for the network with 4.8 million viewers. Wednesday's second episode fell off a bit, drawing 3.4 million viewers.
