TLC Starts Production on Pete Rose Docu-Series

New docu-series shares the lives of Pete Rose & fiancé Kiana Kim


TLC has started production on the “Pete Rose and Kiana Kim Family project” (working title), stepping up to the home plate of Pete Rose, one of baseball’s most talked about players, as he and fiancé Kiana Kim blend their families together. Though the couple is happily engaged, the road to a wedding won’t be without its challenges: some members of Pete’s family may be skeptical of their relationship, and Pete lives and works in Las Vegas, while Kiana and their two kids reside in Los Angeles, leaving them to wonder if they can possibly start a family under separate roofs in different cities.


Pete’s legendary history with baseball further complicates their lives. Kiana and her family know very little about that part of his past and his side of the story behind the public problems he’s had. Pete shares more about his rise to fame in – and infamous banning from – the sport he loves, lives and breathes. With the support of Kiana and her kids, his family, and legions of diehard supporters, he considers appealing with the commissioner again to discuss reinstatement.  The “Pete Rose and Kiana Kim Family project” will bring viewers along as Pete attempts to build the family together with  the career he’s always wanted to have.


TLC has ordered five episodes of the “Pete Rose and Kiana Kim Family project” to air in late fourth quarter. Creature Films, Inc. is producing for the network.


“Pete is one of sport’s most controversial characters, and his life is even more fascinating off the field as it was on,” said Amy Winter, GM, TLC. “This series will open the door into a very Modern Family dynamic of trying to blend families when your kids are no longer children, and when your private life is in the public spotlight.”
