Drake’s dad, Dennis Graham, might be heading to a TV near you.

According to TMZ, Drizzy’s dad is reportedly in talks to land his own reality TV show that will follow his journey as he searches for true love. Sources told the outlet that Graham and TV producer David Weintraub have been pitching the series to several networks.

The site notes that the show will be about more than romance. In fact, reports claims that Graham’s TV show is expected to give an inside look on his lifestyle, which consists of “clubbing, driving expensive cars and of course, all the fringe benefits of being Drake’s pops.”

Sources have also said that Graham and Weintraub are expected to land a deal within the next week, as Vice and WE tv have expressed interest in offering a home for the series. It is unclear, however, the tone and format of the show.

Drake and his dad recently made headlines after Graham claimed that his rapper son lied about their relationship and portrayed him as an absentee father in his lyrics. During an appearance on Power 106’s Nick Cannon Mornings last month, Graham said, “I had a conversation with Drake about that. I always been with Drake.”

He continued, “I talk — I talk to him if not every day, then every other day. We really got into a deep conversation about that. I said, ‘Drake, why are you saying all of this different stuff about me? Man, this is not cool.’”

Graham then said that Drake admitted that the content about his dad’s alleged absence helps him sell records. “He [said], ‘Dad, it sells records.’ Uh-okay. Okay, well [we’re] cool,” Graham added. Drake, however, responded to his dad’s comments. He wrote on his Instagram Stories at the time, “My father will say anything to anyone that’s willing to listen to him. It’s sad when family gets like this, but what can we really do that’s the people we are stuck with.”
