CINCINNATI - The Hit King is taking a swing at his own reality TV show beginning in January.
Cable's TLC network says the unscripted series to chronicle the lives of baseball's all-time hitting leader and his fiancee, model Kiana Kim, will air beginning Jan. 14 at 10 p.m.
The six-part series will follow the couple as they plan a wedding and go through the process of blending their respective families.
The 71-year-old Rose is banned from baseball for betting on games when he was the manager for the Cincinnati Reds. The ban has left him ineligible to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
He leads baseball with 4,256 hits in his career.
