It is being reported that Mick Foley is shopping around to several networks, including SpikeTV, a new sitcom that would see Foley star as an exaggerated version of himself. In addition to Foley, actor/comedian Joey Kola has been attached to the project playing the role of Barry Blumenthal, who would be Foley’s agent on the show, and is a spin-off of Foley’s real life agent Barry Bloom.
The show is still seeking a female lead to play Foley’s wife Nicole, who will be loosely based on Foley’s real life wife Collette. The concept of the on-screen marriage will be similar to that of Foley being an average guy who marries a really good looking woman. While no names have been mentioned for the role, there appears to be a role in the works for Christy Canyon, a former adult star, who will play the part of Foley’s next door neighbor. Foley has written about his fondness for Canyon in several books, so it appears she will play a recurring, although limited, role on the show. Scripts for the yet to be titled series are currently in development, and one pitch idea hopes that SpikeTV will want to pick up the show as Foley is a TNA star and it fits with the company’s corporate synergy.
