Vince Young, who turns 23 next Thursday, is allowing a television crew from BET, led by Emmy Award-winning director Brendon J. Carter, to make a six-episode show entitled Vince Young: Next Level. The show will depict what life has been like for the former Texas star through the months from his readying for the NFL Draft through the early stages of his career with Tennessee, according to the NASHVILLE CITY PAPER.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“TheyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll follow him around through the whole process. People see the end product, but they donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know all the things heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s had to do to get himself prepared for that,Ã¢â‚¬Â YoungÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s agent Major Adams said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“TheyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been following him around since March, and they should be finished following him around sometime in June.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The series will air beginning in October, and is the first of the sports-based Ã¢â‚¬Å“Next LevelÃ¢â‚¬Â series that will feature other athletes in future episodes.
Carter, the executive producer of the show, is no stranger to reality TV, having directed The Osbornes for MTV.
