• Sinbad lands reality show deal for WEtv

    SinbadI don’t care who knows it: Jingle All The Way is one of my favorite kitschy holiday movies, owing largely to the hilarious bickering between Ahnold and Sinbad.

    Sadly, the governator hasn’t had the time to take many new roles, but in two months, long-time stand-up comedian Sinbad will be featured onscreen once again, Deadline reports. Fresh off a stint on The Apprentice, Sinbad will be starring in a new reality series for WEtv. Six episodes of Sinbad’s Family Affair will air on the woman-friendly network beginning April 12, and will feature – unsurprisingly – Sinbad and his family.

    “Sinbad’s story is one of second chances,” said WEtv’s John Miller. “It’s remarkable and heartwarming, but not without its drama, conflict and chaos.”

    I’m hopeful that he’ll have to find a Turboman doll for his children and stumble into some wacky situations.
