(FROM HOLLYWOOD REPORTER) – VH1 has picked up a new reality series, which gives a glimpse into the life of actor-comedian Eddie Griffin and chronicles how he juggles being a player and a family man at the same time. The show, tentatively titled Eddie Griffin: Going for Broke, is produced by the Grief Co., the same people behind A&E’s Gene Simmons reality show, Gene Simmons: Family Jewels. VH1 placed an eight-episode order to the Griffin series. (Hollywood Reporter)
