Deion Sanders: College football legend, NFL Hall of Famer, Brief Baseball Star, Friend of Tim McCarver, Screaming Football Analyst, and now, TV star. Oprah Winfrey’s TV network, OWN, recently released all of its new programming for this Fall and beyond, and on the 2014 slate is: “It’s Prime’s Time,” starring Deion, his girlfriend Tracey Edmonds, and a lot of kids.
The write-up sounds like something your reality-TV loving wife might want to set the DVR for:
It’s Prime’s Time (working title) is the hilarious and compelling real life story of Deion Sanders, the football legend, baseball great, broadcaster, Hall of Famer, international superstar, businessman, educator and father, as he strives to keep all the facets of his complicated, crazy and chaotic life in balance and under control. Deion faces the challenges of raising his five children in a household that also includes his mother, her foster children and his aunt and uncle, while guiding the future of Prime Prep Academy, the charter school he created to try to make a lasting impact on the lives of children in underserved areas. He plays the role of father, leader, bread-winner, coach and teacher for everyone around him. And in those rare instances when he gets a little overwhelmed, his girlfriend, producer and businesswoman Tracey Edmonds, who has two sons of her own, is there to help pick up the slack. The series is produced by Edmonds Entertainment, Prime Time Media Ventures and Rogue Atlas Productions in association with Lionsgate. Executive producers are Eli Frankel, Tracey E. Edmonds and Deion Sanders.
If Tracey Edmonds sounds familiar, it’s because she’s the ex-wife of Babyface and Eddie Murphy (though the latter lasted just two weeks). Deion Sanders has an ex-wife who I’m sure will be mentioned once or twice.
