Ashely Parker Angel, other quasi-celebs have MTV shows in development

The last time we saw Ashley Parker Angel, he was showering on Making the Band. Now, he’s penniless and has a knocked-up fiancee. Oh, how the boy band member has fallen.

But MTV is coming to the rescue. Ashley, who literally is “broke, engaged and about to become a father,” according to Variety, will star in There and Back. The show “chronicles [his] attempted comeback,” and is currently in development.

Other shows that are in the works at MTV also have a quasi-celebrity angle. Among them:

  • 8th & Ocean, “a docusoap centered on the lives of wannabe fashion models trying to make it in Miami Beach.”
  • Omarion, which “revolves around the R&BR&B artists’s attempt to follow in the footsteps of Sean “P. Diddy” Combs by becoming a corporate mogul complete with his own recording label and show line.”
  • Mr. Rooney’s Barbershop, set in “the Queens, N.Y.-based barbershop where local cutters scout for hip-hop talent from the ‘hood.”
  • Welcome to Crunkville, which “centers on contestants who audition to move into the Atlanta pad of hip-hop artists The Ying Yang Twins.”
