Burlesque scene is no longer new for the ex-stripper and “Magic Mike” star. But it seems he’s not over yet.
Excited to know more about Channing’s new ‘strip’ venture? Well, check out the story below!
In the latest celebrity update, Channing Tatum is producing a reality show about his New Orleans burlesque club.
In fact the Variety reports that Tatum was inspired to open up Saints and Sinners on the city’s famous Bourbon Street in 2012 after starring in strip movie Magic Mike. Now he’s taking cameras behind-the-scenes at the venue.
The untitled small screen project will follow the entertainers at the establishment for the planned series at US network A&E according to the outlet.
The show is currently in the pilot stage.
The actor and his Saints and Sinners partner Keith Kurtz are reportedly producing through the star’s 33andOut Productions banner alongside Charlie Corwin at Original Media.
However, it’s not yet known if Tatum will appear on the show.
The Hollywood hunk’s work as a male stripper before his mainstream success has paid off so far.
Furthermore, Steven Soderbergh directed Magic Mike, loosely based on Channing’s early days as an exotic dancer, and the film was a huge box office hit with earnings topping $100 million.
The 33 years old actor was quizzed last year on reports there may be a sequel in the pipeline but admitted he would be reluctant to work on another installment without the celebrated helmer.
“You know, we don’t know if it’s going to happen yet. We want it to happen. We’d love it to be a road trip movie, but Soderbergh’s not directing – like done. He’s like actually gone. It’s hard to imagine doing the movie without him,” Channing told MTV News.
Meanwhile, Channing has no shortage of work. He recently signed on to star opposite Nick Zano for a multi-camera comedy at CBS according to Variety.
