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.
