Since being release from prison this morning, Tip is already hard at work. VH1 has just announced a new television show that will give fans an intimate look at T.I.'s return to freedom. In the still untitled series, viewers will get a behind-the-scenes look at T.I., and his wife Tameka "Tiny" Harris, as he tries to walk the straight and narrow and stay out of prison for good. The series is set to premiere on December 5th at 10 p.m.
The half hour 10-episode series follows the "King of the South" at his most vulnerable state, as he is released from an 11 month Federal prison term, his second stint in three years. Along the way we will see T.I. re-acclimate back into his life as a father, husband, son and friend, as well as a musician, a clothier, a businessman, and an actor. We will also witness T.I. behind the scenes in studio as he goes about recording yet another likely Grammy-award winning album. All the while with T.I. needing to abide by a new set of restrictions and obstacles due to his probation terms.
Viewers will also get a glimpse into the very loving and always fascinating relationship between T.I. and his wife Tameka (aka "Tiny"), who has faithfully stood by T.I.'s side through it all. Tameka and T.I. are passionately in love, but both know that this previous incarceration has to be his last. The mother of two of T.I.'s children, along with her own fifteen-year-old daughter, Tameka was forced to hold down the fort while T.I. was behind bars. Viewers will also be introduced to the OMG GIRLZ, a sizzling new up-and-coming pop group that Tameka manages. With T.I. back on his throne, we will watch as he reclaims his kingdom, rebuilds his businesses, and reconnects with his family and friends. Most importantly though, we will see T.I. adjusting to life with a new set of rules, so as to never again repeat the devastating mistakes of his past.
"Viewers have always connected with T.I. and we are definitely thrilled to show the next chapter of this incredible artist's riveting life with this new series," said Jeff Olde, EVP, Original Programming and Production VH1. "T.I. is such a multi- talented artist and actor, and though he has had some setbacks, there is no doubt he will use his considerable talents to get back on top of both the music and film business."
