Britney Spears gets UPN reality show.

Britney Spears gets UPN reality show.
The celebrity reality TV wagon keeps rolling forward, picking up even more debris. The latest to join: Britney Spears and smelly husband Kevin Federline. The couple will star in their own UPN reality series, which will repeat on MTV, VH1, or possibly both. According to Variety, “UPN is wasting no time putting the series together, planning to premiere the skein before the current season ends next month.” Most fascinatingly, the couple hasn’t been trailed by camera crews; instead, “the bulk of the show will consist of video footage shot by Spears and Federline themselves, with UPN adding in some new commentaries and follow-up footage,” Variety reports. UPN’s Dawn Ostroff says, “I don’t think there’s anything sugarcoated about this. It’s pretty raw and pretty real. I don’t think (viewers) have ever been exposed to people being so honest and open about their lives.”
