Get ready to swoon, people, because it looks like the Sexiest Man Alive is going to be in your living rooms on a regular basis. After recently selling a half-hour comedy to CBS, Channing Tatum is now going to be executive producing a reality pilot for A&E.

The hour-long docuseries would revolve around Saints & Sinners, the New Orleans nightclub Tatum opened last year with his friend and business partner Keith Kurtz. Modeled after the town's Storyville era, Saints & Sinners' motto is, "Where the red light is always on."

The project is currently in the pilot stage at A&E, and hails from Tatum’s 33andOut Prods. and Original Media. Tatum and Kurtz will exec produce the show alongside Original’s Charlie Corwin. It is unclear whether Tatum will appear in the show.

Should the burlesque club docuseries be picked up by A&E, it would join the cabler’s slate of unscripted programs including “Duck Dynasty,” the “Storage Wars” franchise, and “American Hoggers.” [Variety]
