Paul Downs Colaizzo will write the show. Meanwhile Luda and Seacrest will executive produce, meaning they have the final word on creative decisions. No air date exists just yet.

Luda already touched the screen in Crash, Hustle & Flow, American Hustle, and the blockbuster hit Fast & Furious 7. Meanwhile, Ryan Seacrest produces The Kardashians’ shows and basically the entire E! network.
