The extremely May-December couple — he’s 51, she’s 16 — told Radar Online that they signed a deal with Roy Bank, whose previous credits include “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?”
While the couple told Radar that Bank’s former employer Merv Griffin Entertainment will produce the show, Bank told Celebritology that the deal is with his new company, Banca Studio. Based on their statement — “[We] are thrilled to be working with this prestigious production company” — the couple seems to be unaware of this.
“They are going to be very, very open about their lives,” Krista, Stodden’s mother and manager told Radar. “They want everybody to see their life. Nothing is off limits.”
As far as we know, the show has yet to be picked up for distribution. So don’t throw away your televisions/set your DVRs yet.
Update: Regarding the show being picked up, Bank says, “We are planning to take it out to the networks in the coming weeks.”
