Show will debut in April
If you grew up in the 80's I'd wager you recall the series Growing Pains. The dad of the family that included Kirk Cameron was Alan Thicke. The series also counted a young Leonardo DiCaprio among its cast in the later seasons of the show.
The Thicke name is probably better known thanks to the singer star Robin Thicke, the singer behind the hit song Blurred Lines. Alan Thicke will be coming back to TV in a show called Unusually Thicke. The series has been picked up for 14 episodes and will premiere on April 16 reports E!.
The show will put Alan Thicke and his family in a strange mix of reality TV and scripted comedy.
"Unusually Thicke combines my two favorite things: family...and laughing at my family," the 67-year-old actor said in a statement. "This series is my foray into the ‘reality-ish' television world where viewers will meet the lovable, unpredictable, and often challenging people who live with the real Jason Seaver."
Other than Robin Thicke, the show will see some other famous stars dropping by. The other famous guests include David Hasselhoff, Wayne Gretzky, Bob Saget, John Stamos, and others.
Thicke revealed, "We take our relatable real-life stories and blow them up to amuse and amaze, tossing in a handful of celebrity friends along the way. Please come aboard and enjoy the ride!"
