Conquering music is not enough for Pitbull.
The Miami-born rapper has set his sights on expanding into TV with two new unscripted series.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Pitbull has teamed up with The Weinstein Co. to produce “Pitbull: The Lyfe” and “The REAL Change Project.”
In “Pitbull: The Lyfe,” the Cuban-American rapper will offer a behind-the-scenes glimpse into his busy life, world tour and recording studio sessions.
Pitbull, whose real name is Armando Christian Perez, will team up with entertainers and public figures like First Lady Michelle Obama, Tony Bennet, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney and Kobe Bryant for “The REAL Change Project.” Here the bunch of notables will look back at the mentors who helped inspire and shape their success, as well as include performances to help raise money for teachers and educators internationally.
“Our television division at TWC has made an incredible name for itself in creating fresh and entertaining unscripted programming,” said Harvey Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Co. “Partnering with Pitbull, one of the biggest names in music today, on ‘The REAL Change Project’ and ‘The Lyfe’ is a phenomenal opportunity that we’re all very excited to get started on.”
The rapper said it’s an honor to work together on these two series that show “that life is what we make it – some follow the rules; other bend them.”
“After the party kicks off 2015, we will show what’s behind the curtain and most important, learning, listening from the best plays a huge role in the journey.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, neither show is attached to networks yet.
