The former Newlyweds star is executive producing a pilot for an MTV series, which the network describes as a version of the '80s movie and TV show Fame, according to The Hollwood Reporter.
The program will focus on students at the School for Creative and Performing Arts in Cincinnati, Lachey's alma mater. (Sarah Jessica Parker and Carmen Electra are also famous former students.)
"The stories and relationships are all set to music that's organic to what's going on in the school and also performed by the kids," Tony DiSanto, executive VP of series development and programming at the network, said. "This is a genre-busting, creative experiment that I'm really excited about."
As an example DiSanto said a scene could feature kids breaking into dance in the cafeteria, which sounds a lot like a real-life High School Musical, or the soundtrack could come from a scene in which a student is practicing his or her instrument.
Does this sound like a good idea?Â
