Whoa: Steven Seagal gets reality show

  • 25comments

Television just got way more awesome. The ponytailed tornado of fists and joint-popping aikido moves known as Steven Seagal has landed his own reality television show courtesy of--not MTV or Spike TV--A&E;, reports Variety.

So what will Steven Seagal be doing? Cooking? Interior decoration? Extreme makeovers? No, Seagal will be doing what he does best--kicking crooks' butts.

Steven Seagal: Lawman will follow the Under Siege star as he works as a part-time deputy in New Orleans. Cameras will be on hand not only as Seagal does his duties keeping the street clean, but also as he lives as a family man, musician, and New Orleans do-gooder.

"I decided to work with A&E; on this series now because I believe it's important to show the nation all the positive work being accomplished here in Louisiana," Seagal said.

Whatever you say, Mr. Seagal, just don't hurt us. Lawman is scheduled to premiere late next year.
