Brit’s Gayest Fan Inks TV Deal

brit_crocker-1.jpg
It’s official: television’s a wasteland. First we had Queer Eye, then William Sledd joined the televised ranks, now comes word that Chris Crocker – aka Britney’s biggest fan – will be piped into people’s homes. Via Variety:

Reality shingle 44 Blue Prods. has inked a development deal with Chris Crocker, the Internet superstar whose tear-filled defense of Britney Spears has generated nearly 8 million hits on YouTube in just one week.

Plan is to develop a docusoap built around Crocker, a 19-year-old who lives with his grandparents in Tennessee. Even before the Britney clip, Crocker had developed a large Net audience via numerous video performances posted on MySpace.com.

“Chris first got on our radar a year ago,” said 44 Blue prexy/co-founder Rasha Drachkovitch, who said he wants to develop a show that plays to Crocker’s strengths.

“It’s going to pretty much be the ‘Chris Crocker experience,'” he said. “We consider him a rebel character that people will find interesting. He’s going to be a TV star.”

We’re sure Drachkovitch meant “TV sideshow”.

PS: Is this Crocker’s Manhunt page?

      No, it’s not.

      Scary shit. This is almost enough to make me eschew the internet altogether.

      Almost.

      Crock of something, all right. If there’s a bright side to this terrible news it’s that maybe he’ll then be able to afford the mountains of therapy he so seems to need.

      No, that isn’t his manhunt page…

      I dunno why gay folks are so HARD on Chris Crocker! I laughed at the Britney thing, but mostly because I could see myself in him.

      Consider: He stood up for her… but when Chris Crocker has needed someone to stand up for him… who was there?

      Consider his heart… please.

      I looked up 44 Blue on IMDB. Check it out, it’s good for a laugh. They’ve produced such well-loved reality shows as Cell Dogs, Caesar 24/7, and Inside:Women Behind Bars. Few of the dozen shows listed lasted longer than 1 season, 1 episode.

      Poor Chris. Signing with these guys is like crossing the River Styx. We’ll never hear from the kid again.

      So the wacko (Chris Crocker) that says he doesn’t care about 911 and all the people that died doesn’t matter to him, he specifically said he “didn’t care about 911″ and that Brittany is more important than 911… this person deserves his own tv show????? Is that how low we have sunk? His own video and his own words: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7ZxLeXbA6g&mode=user&search=
