Who needs Nike? Michael Vick to star in his own reality show

Michael Vick, the former Atlanta Falcons star quarterback convicted of killing dogs for sport and profit, may not have gotten his old Nike contract back, but he is following the well-worn path of former child stars, celebrity heiresses and Z-list actors.

Yes, Michael Vick has gotten his own reality TV show, which he describes as "a story of hope" for kids who may be "dealing with adversity," the LA Timesreported Tuesday. Vick, who served 18 months in prison for running the notorious dog-fighting ring Bad Newz Kennels, is teaming up with BET for the new eight-part "docu-series," tentatively titled "The Michael Vick Project."
