EXCLUSIVE: Their every move is followed by the tabloids. Now celebrity couple LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian will let their everyday lives play out on TV with their own reality series. VH1 has ordered LeAnn & Eddie (working title), a six-episode half-hour series to premiere on VH1 in Fall 2013/Winter 2014. Scott and Deirdre Gurney’s Gurney Prods., which is behind monster unscripted hit Duck Dynasty, is producing.
LeAnn & Eddie will chronicle how singer-actress Rimes and actor Cibrian navigate their careers while also co-parenting Eddie’s two sons. It also promises for the duo to poke fun at what it’s like to be a high-profile couple with more than a little misinformation out there about them. “We are really excited to be working together on a unique show that will give you a glimpse into who we really are or better yet who we’re really not,” Rimes and Cibrian said. “We’re thrilled to partner with VH1 and The Gurneys to put our spin on a project full of love, humor and music.” Rimes and Cibrian will executive produce the series through Country Cuban Productions, along with the Gurneys, John Ferriter for Octagon Entertainment and Scotty Abrams for Maniac Filmworks and Music. “This is going to be a really fun show in which we hope to reveal what their lives are really like – from the normalcy of their home life, to what drives them artistically, to the chaos of their celebrity life,” said Tom Calderone, President of VH1.
