Channing Tatum to produce burlesque reality show

29 October 2013 / 2 years 12 months ago

Channing Tatum is to produce a new reality TV show focusing on the entertainers who work at his burlesque club, Saints and Sinners, in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The 'Magic Mike' hunk will let the cameras roll inside his Saints and Sinners establishment - which he set up with business partner Keith Kurtz in 2012 - in New Orleans, Louisiana, for a new documentary series.

US cable channel A&E has picked up a pilot episode for the potential one-hour series, which will focus on the entertainers who perform at the club, and Channing, 33, will produce the show through his 33&Out Productions firm along with Original Media.

Earlier this year, the actor made his first move into TV production by backing a new sitcom starring his close friend Nick Zano, who has had roles in hit shows such as '90210' and '2 Broke Girls'.

It's been a busy year for Channing, whose wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum gave birth to their first child - daughter, Everly - in June.

Jenna, 32, recently praised her husband for being a hands-on dad and says he has been a great help looking after Everly on the set of her new TV drama 'Witches of East End'.

She said: "He's in the trailer, he's rocking her to sleep, I'm running back and forth breastfeeding.

"He's been amazing - every chance he gets he's here. He's like, 'I could sit here and be set husband all day long. This is so fun!' "
