NORTH AMERICA TAKES A LOOK AT THE LIFE OF SINGLE DAD DAVID HASSELHOFF
AS HE RAISES DAUGHTERS TAYLOR ANN AND HAYLEY
New York, NY –October 21, 2010 – The A&E original real life series “The Hasselhoffs,” spotlighting the life of single dad David Hasselhoff and his two daughters Taylor Ann, 20, and Hayley, 18, premieres Sunday, December 5 at 10/9c on A&E.
Produced by “American Idol” producers FremantleMedia North America, the ten-episode half-hour series brings viewers inside the household of David Hasselhoff where “The Hoff” is just “Dad” and examines the challenges he faces as a single parent raising two young-adult daughters. Despite juggling his multiple entertainment and business endeavors, he is the ultimate “stage dad” and will do anything to help guide his daughters’ decisions as they pursue careers in entertainment and manage their up-and-coming group “Bella Vida.”
The series tags along with father and daughter Taylor Ann performing side-by-side on set of “The Young and The Restless,” goes behind-the-scenes with Hayley at “Huge,” steps in-studio with “Bella Vida” to record, write songs and meet with producers, watches David’s preparations for a comedy roast and travels to Austria where David orchestrates a production of an epic scale, one where the entire family’s reputation hangs in the balance. With three entertainers with big personalities and an unparalleled sibling rivalry between the girls in the house, there is never a dull moment with “The Hasselhoffs,” but throughout it all, David proves he is a dedicated father and no matter what challenges he faces, he has the best interests of his daughters in mind.
Listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as “The Most Watched TV Star in the World,” David Hasselhoff has been on television for more than 30 years. Whether you recognize him from “Knight Rider,” “Baywatch,” or “America’s Got Talent,” there is no disputing the iconic status of “The Hoff.” In between stints on TV, starring roles on Broadway, live performances and business ventures that have taken him worldwide, he is also a single dad, raising two very driven daughters. Hayley, recently starred in the series “Huge” and is signed with Ford Models, and Taylor Ann recently guest-starred on “The Young and the Restless,” and is a communications major at the University of Arizona. The Hasselhoff girls form the group “Bella Vida,” which has toured with their dad abroad and they are currently working on an album.
