Meat Loaf is launching a new reality competition series called “I’d Do Anything For Love … But I Won’t Do That”.
This series is based on the singer’s hit from 1993 which has the same name. The track appeared on his sixth studio album “Bat Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell”.
The show is being produced by the production company, Nobody’s Hero. This company is run by Jonty Nash and Christopher Potts. The duo were also behind the production of Netflix’s Nailed It!
Meat Loaf will work as executive producer for the series. This will mark the musician whose real name is Marvin Lee Aday’s second involvement in reality TV. He also appeared on The Apprentice in 2011.
According to Deadline’s report, I’d Do Anything For Love’s contestants will, “compete in a variety of comedic physical games designed to reveal how well they can work together and how much they really trust and believe in each other – all to a soundtrack of classic hits, performed live in (the) studio by the original artists as well as new stars”.
Meat Loaf series to be “Funny, clever and buzzworthy”
The series is to also include, “absurd and sometimes frightening physical contests, inspired and accompanied by ballads”.
Producers Nash and Potts also added, “For the most part, we want to create shows that are funny, clever and buzzworthy, but two out of three ain’t bad”.
Meat Loaf quipped, “You took the words right out of my mouth”.
Any further details regarding the series have yet to be finalised.
This also comes after the star was reportedly suing a hotel in Texas after he fell from a stage in the complex. He spent 42 days in hospital.
The incident happened just before the artist was preparing to appear in a Q&A session as part of the Dallas Horror Film Convention, Texas Frightmare Weekend.
The complaint was filed to the District Court of Tarrant County which stated that the star, “put his foot down on part of the curtain that had nothing beneath it”.
He also stated last year that he has taken up a vegan diet, but insisted he will not change his stage name. See more here.
The singer announced a few years ago that he was also on a health kick, after collapsing on stage. More here.
