BET is developing a reality series involving football player Vince Young and rapper DMX.

The black-oriented cable channel unveiled its slate for the upcoming season during its "upfront" presentation for advertisers in New York Monday.

Next Level: Vince Young follows the quarterback as he ventures into the pro game, while DMX: Soul of a Man will examine the troubled rapper's personal life.

Other projects ready to roll this year include a late-night romance anthology series, an entertainment newsmagazine, and a retrospective on black gangsters.
