Decker clearly has not learned from Baskett, a former NFL wide receiver, and Clippers forward Lamar Odom, because he is the most recent athlete to lend an inside look at his life and relationship via the E! Network. Both Baskett and Odom experienced dips in their professional careers after becoming involved with their own scripted TV series on the entertainment network.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Decker and his country singer fiancee, are set to launch a scripted reality show called “Love and Other Contact Sports: Eric and Jessie” in late summer. The series will chronicle the couple’s road to the altar (their wedding is approaching this summer) and the typical intersection of love, careers and family.
The couple lives in Denver as Decker looks to shine with the Broncos this season, and the team’s front office seems to be nothing but supportive of the pair in their quest for reality TV show fame. According to USA Today Sports, Broncos president John Elway doesn’t seem too concerned about the potential distraction saying, “I take my hat off to him that he’s gone ahead and agreed to do that.”
Most of the filming for the first season of the show is complete, and none of the shooting will be at the Broncos’ team facility.
