Terrell Owens Scores a Second Season of His Hit VH1 Series 'The'
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Hot on the heels of wrapping up his first season of "The," VH1 has picked up Terrell Owens option for a second go-around of his hit series. It seems Terrell will have a successful career off the football field too as the "The " has been a ratings hit for VH1 with an average of over 1.5 million viewers per episode.
As this is a show about Terrell's off-season life, the series will resume production shortly after his 2009 football season ends with the Buffalo Bills. Season two will begin as his one-year contract with the Buffalo Bills expires and he will once again be faced with the question of -- will he back with the Bills or will he be looking for a new team in the off-season. He will also be exploring business opportunities for life after football and dealing with the women in his life.
Kita Williams and Monique Jackson, Terrell's two best friends as well as his marketing and publicity team, are also returning to the series. In addition to molding Terrell's image off the field they are also a formidable duo in his personal life that do their best to guide him in his personal life with sound sisterly advice.
"Terrell has been a great asset to the VH1 team and we're thrilled to have him back for another season," stated Jeff Olde, EVP Original Programming and Production, VH1. "He is a compelling figure to watch both on and off the field and we hope to continue to watch his life evolve beyond football for many seasons to come."
"The" is executive produced by Evan Prager and Jesse Ignjatovic for Den of Thieves. Executive producers for VH1 are Jill Holmes, Alex Demyanenko, Noah Pollack, and Jeff Olde.
