Los Angeles Rams Get E! Reality Series
The Rams haven't even played their first game back in Los Angeles but the NFL team is already getting the Hollywood treatment.
E! has greenlighted a new docuseries, Hollywood & Football, which will follow Rams' teammates and their families as they pack their bags and head west from St. Louis. The reality show, which will premiere this fall with six hourlong episodes, will chronicle the move and their inaugural season in a new city.
“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,” Jeff Olde, executive vp of programming and development at the network, said Wednesday in a statement. “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.”
Produced by T Group, Hollywood & Football will be executive produced by Jenny Daly, Rob Lobl and Shauna Thomas. The series marks the second reality show that will feature the Rams as the upcoming season of HBO's Hard Knocks will also center on the relocating team. The following members of what E! is calling the “Ram-ily” will be featured on Hollywood & Football:
