Two of the most colorful players in the National Football League–who now happen to be teammates–are getting their own cable talk show.
The players, Cincinnati Bengals Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens, both of whom are used to being in front of the camera with lots to say, will star in Versus’ new "The T.Ocho Show," according to USA Today.
According to the article, "Ochocinco says the show will focus on football but might also touch on ‘baseball and hockey. With my love of soccer, I’ll throw that in. And porn. I’m doing amateur porn, so I’ll throw that in. … Do you understand how dangerous this is for us to have a stage like this?’ "
And Owens told USA Today, "There will be topics where Chad and I will get in trouble. We’ll talk about issues that aren’t talked about in the mainstream media. It’s an opportunity for two of loudest mouths who’ve been in the league."
Andy Meyer, Versus’ vice president of original programming said, according to the article, " ‘We’d love this to be the creation of a new genre of television’ where athletes can speak ‘without layers of editors and beat writers filtering them out.’ "
Sneak peeks of "The T.Ocho Show" are airing beginning this week as part of Versus’ "The Daily Line" at 11 p.m. ET. After five weeks on "The Daily Line," the show will officially premiere Oct. 12 at 10:30 p.m. ET.
