MTV is listed on the Georgia film office site as creating a local reality series featuring NBA star Iman Shumpert and his actress wife Teyana Taylor.

The site lists no details. I am awaiting a response from an MTV publicist to see if I can get more information. [The network only confirmed the show’s existence on November 14, 2017 with a release date February 19, 2018.]

Shumpert is a shooting guard with the Cleveland Cavaliers and has an off-season home in Atlanta with 6,091 square feet and six bedrooms. He attended Georgia Tech for three years before going to the NBA for the New York Knicks. He joined the Cavaliers in 2015 and won a world championship last year.

Taylor is an actress whose resume includes “Stomp the Yard 2: Homecoming,” “Madea’s Big Happy Family” and “Honey 4” coming next year.

They both appeared in last year’s raunchy Kanye West video for “Fade.” (It’s explicit. You can watch it here on YouTube.)

“It was bigger than a sports bra and a thong,” she told Wendy Williams last year. “It was a lot of emotion in that dance, a lot of intensity.”

Taylor and Shumpert married in 2016 and have one daughter.
