Since The Two Coreys didn’t get picked back up by A&E, they needed something to fill the time slot! And lucky for MC Hammer, it’s him!
It was just a matter of time until he jumped on the bandwagon to become known again. The show will be called Hammertime, and will focus on him and his wife and kids. Sounds riveting.
The network must really want people to tune in because they’re comparing it to an unscripted version of the Cosby show! Executive producer J.D. Roth says, "Here's a dad with five kids, married to the same woman for more than 23 years, living in the same place where he grew up and going to church every Sunday. He's had his ups and downs, and it's what makes him such a character you root for."
What we want to know is what he even does for money right now! He did go bankrupt back in the 90s. But that recent Cash 4 Gold commercial can’t be the only thing he’s living on!
A&E also released a statement saying,
"MC Hammer is an iconic figure in American pop culture, but many people only know him for his music and fashion sense. Now A&E takes an unprecedented look behind his larger-than-life personality and into his life as a devoted husband, father and business entrepreneur.”
Well, they’re really trying to sell it to us! Would you tune in to watch an all-gown-up MC Hammer?
