Mike Vick, like so many other struggling for ligh Black Celebs, has tapped into the BET network for a reality show. BET is set to release the “Michael Vick Project” very soon.  It’s supposed to follow his comeback to the NFL  and life post-prison. And how he gets his ish back on track.

“I just want people to really get to know me as an individual,” Vick told the L.A. Times. “I am a human being. I’ve made some mistakes in the past, and I wish it had never happened. But it’s not about how you fall, but about how you pick yourself up. This show can be a blueprint for so many kids,” he said. “I want to show them that things are going to happen, that they’re not going to get through life without dealing with some kind of adversity. I want to show that if they have a fall from grace, this is how they can turn it around. We want this to be a story of hope.”

And what the show will be about:

Producers of the Vick series emphasized the program should be considered a docu-series — not a typical reality show like VH-1’s “The T.O. Show,” which revels in the excesses of its flamboyant star, wide receiver Terrell Owens. The tone of Vick’s show, say producers, will be serious and somber as it focuses on his personal struggles since his release, including the strains on his relationships with his fiancée, Kijafa Frink, and his children. It will also revisit the federal prison in Leavenworth, Kan., where Vick spent 1 1/2 years behind bars and the Virginia property where he ran and financed a dogfighting ring.
