Jimmer to do own ‘reality show’

@SportsBata

BYU leading scorer and lights-out shooter, Jimmer Fredette, has agreed to do a new ‘reality show’. The show will be an insight on how Jimmer and his fam deal with the transition from college ball to the NBA. He signed with Tupelo-Honey Productions for over a 100 hours of guaranteed footage. For the first month footage will include daily 2-4 minute webisodes, a daily video blog and weekly recap features. After that, a long-form documentary will be available for broadcast and theatrical use. Check out Jimmer’s reaction, and read the excerpt, courtesy yardbarker:

Tupelo-Honey Productions (THP) will follow the drama of Jimmer’s every move as he transitions from great college player to NBA professional including: agent interaction, financial planning, training and nutrition, appearances, and private moments all the way up to the NBA Draft itself. THP will package the exclusive content for multi-purpose use across several distribution outlets. The digital packaging could include daily 2-4 minute webisodes, a daily video blog and weekly recap features. Following the thirty days, THP will produce a long-form documentary for broadcast or theatrical release.

Says Fredette about the prospect of becoming a reality TV star…

“This is an amazing time for me,” said Jimmer. “I’m looking forward to preparing for an NBA career and this project will allow me to share the excitement I’m feeling with the fans who have been with me for my college career. Putting this on the internet means basketball fans everywhere can follow this great opportunity that I’m blessed to have.”
