Antoine Dodson, whose claim to fame lies in the viral video “Bed Intruder,” has been given the opportunity to shoot a reality television show pilot.
The show will center around Dodson and his family as they move across the country from their housing project in Alabama to Hollywood and around Dodson’s desire to “leveraging every aspect he can to make a better life for his family,” according to producer Entertainment One. The producers may also consider issuing a musical offering from Dodson in the future.
To be sure, this is coonery of the Tyler Perry variety. I’m talking, like, Level Orange Coonery. But I also read this dude (dudette?) used the proceeds from his iTunes sales to move his family out of the projects and to establish a juvenile diabetes foundation. So I guess the ends justify the means, right? But still. Why God? Why?
