Move over, Kim Kardashian. Pete Rose is coming to reality television.

TLC has started production on a reality series starring the 71-year-old Rose and his much younger model fiance, Kiana Kim, according to Entertainment Weekly. The show's working title is “Pete Rose and Kiana Kim Family Project.”

“We're just a normal family with 4,200 hits,” Rose said.

Rose, the all-time hits leader, received a lifetime ban from baseball in 1989 for gambling on the sport as a player and manager.

Rose has been seeking reinstatement, but the reality show will likely do him no favors. According to EW, at least one episode will feature “Rose taking the family to visit the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.”

Five episodes of the show are slated to air later this year.
