Cash-strapped hip-hop and R&B mogul Scott Storch has turned to reality TV in a bid to reverse his flagging fortunes.
The music producer has signed a deal with reality show giants Bunim/Murray Productions - the company behind The Real World and Keeping Up With The Kardashians - with a view to fronting his own series.
Storch's as-yet untitled show will chronicle his life as a Miami, Florida party scene stalwart and hitmaker, while following his efforts to reinvent his career after a series of financial issues.
Executive producer David Weintraub says, "This is a monumental moment to see a producer of his calibre let the cameras into his world and see how hit records are made. A lot of people have tried to get Scott to open up the curtain to this process but have never been successful."
Storch hit the headlines earlier this year (09) after missing payments on his Miami mansions, his luxury cars and child support obligations. He has also pleaded not guilty to grand theft auto after allegedly failing to return a leased Bentley on time.
Storch, 35, recently opened up about his financial worries, blaming his money situation on a devastating drug habit that resulted in him blowing his multi-million dollar fortune on cocaine.
