It’s looking like WE tv may be beating VH1 and Shed Media at their own game pretty soon. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network, which is owned by AMC, has listed “Big Pippen” among several docuseries that are in development for it’s 2013-2014 lineup.

The WEtv network revealed that the show will document the lives of retired Chicago Bulls small forward, Scottie Pippen and his wife Larsa. The show is expected to depict the glamorous life of luxury that the Pippen’s have been afforded due to Scottie’s successful career as an NBA star while still portraying true to life issues that couples have to endure regardless the size of their bank accounts.

Big Pippen, from Left Right Productions, revolves around Chicago power couple Larsa and Scottie Pippen. From private jets to designer digs, diamond rings and six NBA championships, the Pippen’s live a truly charmed life. Add in her overbearing family and his clan from Arkansas, and this duo is living life Big Pippen style.”

With great new additions like “Tamar & Vince” and “Mary Mary” WE tv has risen to become a major player in the reality television arena and it seems that they are coming for the number one spot. The show seems like it will be fairly interesting as pesky in-laws is probably a subject that many married couples can relate to. It is also important to note that unlike VH1’s “Basketball Wives”, with the exception of Doug Christie, this show will be featuring a very notable figure and player in from the NBA as opposed to players we’ve only heard of because their wives or baby mamas are on a reality show. Plus it would be pretty cool to see what Scottie has been up to since his retirement from professional basketball. If VH1 wants to stay in the game they had better snag some real basketball players and quickly.

Will you be watching “Big Pippen”?

    Do we need yet ANOTHER so called reality tv show spotlighting how the rich and fabulous live? I am over it, and no I will not be watching.

    No wonder Kim K has been spotted w/ their daughter a lot lately. Gotta get buzz around the Pippen name

  • kierah

    The only reason people care about Pippen is because he had the locker next to Jordan. Ain’t nobody trying to care about this show. Some TV exec is about to lose his job over this one.

    After seeing how much of a fool and complete b- his wife was on real housewives I will absolutely not be watching this show

  • Kitsy

    I won’t be watching, but what I wanted to add was: I remember watching them on the first season of Real House Wives of Miami and I kept thinking that the only reason why her [Middle Eastern] family accepted him was because he had essentially bought their acceptance. He was financially supporting her entire family, including her mom and younger brothers (in one episode she got him to buy her teenage brother a luxury car). She acted like a spoiled beyotch and you could just tell that the only reason she was with him was the money.

    I feel so sorry for real actors. All of this reality garbage is taking the spot of good entertainment. I don’t care about these vain, semi celebrities and the fakeness that they put on for the cameras.
