The infamous sportsman is aware that the show won't alter the negative perception of him but he is hoping that it is going to turn around his fall from grace.

As part of his attempts to rebuild his life toward the better, Michael Vick will star in a reality show tentatively called "The Michael Vick Project". The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback infamously got into a dogfighting business and was rewarded 18 months of jail time for it. He was released in May and apparently struck a deal with BET to have cameras following him shortly after.

A "docu-series", the reality show will trace his life way back from the difficult childhood to the 2007 arrest to his comeback into Eagles. In between that, there will also be a time when he is trying to mend his strained relationships with fiancee, Kijafa Frink, and his children.

"I just want people to really get to know me as an individual," Vick said. "What I want to do is change the perception of me. I am a human being. I've made some mistakes in the past, and I wish it had never happened. But it's not about how you fall, but about how you pick yourself up."

There has been no mention about the compensation that Vick will get to be in the show. It is in fact being co-produced by his own production company, MV7, for a premiere in early 2010.

Already the project is receiving a negative response from PETA. A spokesman for the organization, Dan Shannon, stated "People who abuse animals don't deserve to be rewarded. They shouldn't be given multimillion-dollar contracts ... or given the privilege of being a role model."

LOL @ all you haters. If he wasn't making any money, NONE of you haters would give a rat's testicles. The problem here is that you racist bastards don't want to see him make millions coming out of prison just like Martha Stewart did. Isn't it funny how all the hate spewed towards Vick has actually benefitted him financially? And the more you spew the hate, the more financial success he will continue to have. I LOVE IT!!!!

"I just want people to really get to know me as an individual," Vick said. "What I want to do is change the perception of me. I am a human being. I've made some mistakes in the past, and I wish it had never happened. But it's not about how you fall, but about how you pick yourself up."
