Now, producers at BET are developing a new reality series for Brown, which will document his life and various business ventures, according to the Los Angeles Times. Set to executive produce the series is acclaimed reality expert James DuBose, who helmed NFL star Michael Vick's reality show following his imprisonment for involvement in a dogfighting ring.
The singer's new series is sure to provide the same kind of drama as seen in "Being Bobby Brown." In 2012 alone, the star reunited with his '80s pop group New Edition for a U.S. tour, married his longtime manager, Alicia Etheredge, checked into a rehab facility and dealt with the death of his ex-wife. BET bosses have yet to announce the title or premiere date for Brown's docu-series.
