Flavor Flav wants to return to high school for his sixth reality series
Flavor Flav, who turned 50 in March, wants to return to high school and be filmed for what would be his sixth reality series, but he doesn’t have a network yet.
Flavor, aka William Drayton, dropped out in 10th grade and “is teaming with producer Eric Ortner to shop a new series to networks in which he returns to high school to receive his diploma,” The Hollywood Reporter’s James Hibberd reports.
“I’ve been known to be a leader and I’ve had a lot of followers and there’s a certain franchise I’ve set up on VH1. This show can be big enough to change the direction of reality shows,” Flavor said. He’s referring indirectly to Ryan Jenkins’ murder/suicide, and Orther said, “It’s perfect timing to change the type of show he was going to do and be more message-driven.”
The fact that they are announcing that they’re shopping the series and making a public pitch to VH1 is kind of odd, and might mean that there isn’t much interest.
