Alan Thicke will star in Unusually Thicke, a reality sitcom for TVGN, premiering on Wednesday, April 16.
Best known for his role in Growing Pains and more recently How I Met Your Mother, Thicke will star in the 14-episode reality show alongside his much younger wife Tanya and opinionated 16-year-old son Carter. The reality show will put Thicke’s family under the spotlight and highlight their everyday lives.
“Unusually Thicke combines my two favorite things: family… and laughing at my family,” said Alan Thicke. “This series is my foray into the ‘reality-ish’ television world where viewers will meet the lovable, unpredictable, and often challenging people who live with the real Jason Seaver. We take our relatable real-life stories and blow them up to amuse and amaze, tossing in a handful of celebrity friends along the way. Please come aboard and enjoy the ride!”
The show will also feature appearances from his Grammy-Award-winning son Robin Thick, actor David Hasselhoff, comedian Bob Saget, NBA legend Magic Johnson, NHL star Wayne Gretzky, actor John Stamos, political commentator/comedian Bill Maher, actor Tom Green and many more.
“Alan’s real-life persona is just as likable, engaging and funny as the television characters he’s played over the years, and we’re excited to bring viewers an original reality sitcom featuring his real-life modern family,” Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment and Media at TVGN said. “This is Alan Thicke in the role of his life.”
Peacock Alley Entertainment produces Unusually Thicke.
