NEW YORK (AP) — Pete Rose is taking a swing at his own reality TV show.

Cable's TLC network says it has started production on an unscripted series to chronicle the lives of baseball's all-time hitting leader and his fiancee, model Kiana Kim.

The series will follow the couple as they plan a wedding and go through the process of blending their respective families. The show is so far untitled.

The network announced Wednesday that TLC has ordered five episodes to air late this year.

The 71-year-old Rose is banned from baseball for betting on games when he was the manager for the Cincinnati Reds. The ban has left him ineligible to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

He leads baseball with 4,256 hits in his career.
