Aubrey O’Day knows the reality-TV routine. The former Danity Kane singer, who was discovered while appearing in MTV’s “Making the Band” in 2004, will return to her roots with “The Aubrey O’Day Project,” an upcoming series on the Oxygen network.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the show will follow the former Diddy protégé’s attempts to make a comeback in the music business “while working with a demanding team of industry professionals.”
The series doesn’t have an airdate yet, but an executive at Oxygen said that the show will likely resonate with fans who’ve watched O’Day’s career rise and fall over the past six years.
“Young women have watched the ups and downs of Aubrey through the years, and they continue to cheer her on,” said Amy Introcaso-Davis, senior VP of original programming and development at Oxygen. “We’re excited to deliver her story as she battles the issues that resonate with our audience, from self-doubt and body image to an intense desire for success and redemption.”
Last summer, O’Day spoke to MTV News about making a reality show about her return to the stage, apparently focusing on her “Peepshow” work. “I’m about to take a huge star’s position in a Vegas show that just opened,” she told MTV News about an untitled show that she said was slated to air by late 2009. “And coming with me will be reality-show cameras, of course … I’m starting to film my reality show, hopefully coming out in October.” She described that series as a “docu-soap about me taking the stage again and of my own life.”
O’Day is also reportedly in the studio working on a solo album.
