Doug Hutchison, Courtney Stodden at work on reality show

It looks like controversial couple Doug Hutchison and Courtney Stodden are looking to join the ranks of Snooki, Speidi and the Kardashians - the two are reportedly working on a reality show.

According to E! News, the 17-year-old bride and her 51-year-old actor husband have a project in the works with Merv Griffin Entertainment and the company’s President of Television Roy Bank. (Bank is behind “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?”)

"We are so thrilled that we are in business with Merv Griffin Entertainment and Roy Bank," Doug and Courtney said in a statement. "[Bank] is a delightful man, and we know the show is going to be successful."

The couple hasn't started filming yet, although they do have a name for the show (they’re not sharing).

"It's going to show people what they can teach each other from different generations," Courtney's mom Krista Keller told E! News.

Keller, who signed off on the Vegas marriage when her daughter was 16, is also the couple’s manager.

"They're going to touch on family issues,” Keller continued. “There was a lot of judgment about their marriage from Doug's side of the family, so it will touch on bringing families back together and why it's important to support family members even if you don't agree."

In addition to family issues, the show will also address plastic surgery rumors and the cyber bullying Courtney says she’s been facing.

The family is certain this show will be a success. "Courtney is No. 1 in ratings for whatever she does," Keller said of her daughter.

Courtney and Doug’s show has yet to find a network.

    People should not be directing such hate to such a young girl. She may look older but she is still a young girl. The one who should be blamed is her MOTHER who has steered her the wrong way, encouraged a marriage to a 51 year old man and who is also her BUSINESS MANAGER. Yes, the girl's MOTHER is her MANAGER, which is VERY TELLING. Point the fingers of hate at the right person, her MOTHER who is a mature woman and makes the decisions for her young daughter who relies on and trusts her own mother for guidance.

    When are they going to stop making stupid reality shows for dumba$$ people. These two don't deserve a show and who's life is lame enough that they would watch garbage like that? I can understand young boys watching to just look at her but that is a small amount of people. I hope it doesn't last long. She is such a loser and can't wait to hear what Anderson Cooper has to say about this. He mocked her pretty good before and it was hilarious.

    Sorry, but they need another angle. If anyone buys this "they are going to touch on family issues" thing, it will truly show the ignorance of people who watch reality tv. Neither one of them has any experience on family issues, other than whacked out ideas they have. I'm not judging them, but trying to say this show is about family issues is like saying Shaft was about teaching young men how to respect women.

Sadly, they will get their 15 minutes fame too. It can't be that shes just a gold digger......It's not like this guy has millions of dollars.

    I actually feel sorry for this girl. She's the most worn out looking 17 year old I've ever seen. She doesn't really have any performance talent, so apparently her parents decided her only option was to aspire to the likes of late night Cinemax. And when that wasn't good enough, they exchanged her services (marrying her off) for attention. Can you imagine having parents that thought that little of you? This story does not differ much from those that we hear from third world countries.

    Oh and a re-cap of Courneys cyber bullying video: Starts off with her talking about what a horrible epidemic cyber-bullying has become. After 10 seconds of that, she talks about herself and then reads out personal insults that she has recieved and her come-backs to them. Seriously, if you want to feel better about yourself, watch this video. It's sad and clear that she just wants attention, and doesn't give a crap about cyber bullying or its victims. And I thought she actually had a conscience for a few seconds. What an insult to real victims.

    Sadly, I've been in her shoes. Thank god I didn't marry, but was with the man for over 3 years. Just as happy and secure as they appear in the photo above. Sure they can teach us whatever they want about tolerance, but the marriage WILL fail, mark my words. And I am not trying to be cynical, just merely speaking from experience. Having disgruntled family members, etc. Fighting with his kids for attention. Eventually, she WILL crave young meat, when she realises she is basically dating her father. It gets to the point where you're only doing it for him. It gets old.

    Her mother seems more of a friend to her than a role-model. I can respect that she is allowing her daughter to date the man, and accepting him..., but marriage at 16? What is the rational reason for that? To prove a point and get attention? That's what I find just sad.

    I thought I knew everything when I was 17 too. Hey, I was in love with a 40 year old and had my whole life planned out. But I grew up, and my only reason for not regretting the entire ordeal was because I learned so many valuable lessons that I would only learn by going through this. I was then able to better myself and my life. My mother never supported our relationship, my brothers had basically written me off. My father wouldn't speak to me. But that wasn't even the reason for our split. I just wish I woke up sooner.

    As for this quote by her mom: "Courtney is No. 1 in ratings for whatever she does," ... I honestly laughed out loud and almost choked on my drink. She needs to get over herself and stop trying to re-live her youth through her daughter. Clearly she hasn't seen her daughters "music videos" or any of her videos on youtube. I would be surprised if her IQ was over 100. She's No. 1 at attention seeking, but as for talent? Unless looking good is a talent... she has none. There is a gabillion smoking hot women out there, but she seems to think her daughter is the only one, why the need to parade her around? Good luck to them, I guess.

So, instead of complaining about what's on, turn it off. Play with your kids, enjoy nature, love your spouse. Life is truly better out of tv land. Try it.

Her career is going nowhere because, well, she's a newbie and frankly only has her looks to get by on. Soooo, they devise a plan to get all the publicity they can handle. They decide, hey, let's get married and start up a reality show based on our alleged nasty May-December relationship. We will be uber-gross and everyone will tune into the train wreck we create. That will be our meal-ticket and stepping stone into other things...because if Snooky can do it.....maybe we will be the next Kardasians and have our entire lives manufactured for TV ratings.

    How does this guy land such a gorgeous woman??? And wait... SEVENTEEN??? W T F??? That is just wrong on so many levels... take her age times 3 and you get his age... LOL...

    Good news for any of you guys out there... reality shows like this usually ruin relationships... most of the time... these two will split before you know it.

      He was an actor on the show "Lost", although it was a fairly minor part until he became a regular in the last season. And if you think she's really 17, I have some oceanfront property in Kansas I want to sell you.

      That would be funny if you were right... but it's even funnier that you're wrong.

      Love these trolls that rip on other people with their misinformation... no your brain cannot read minds and tell people's "real" ages... sorry. Get back on your meds, please.

      With or without a reality show, these two will not make it long. Shame on her father for allowing her to get married. I guess her father is a gold digger as well. She looks a lot older than she is.

    • Doug Stodden is Sick

      If that is your idea of beautiful I would hate to see what you look like. She looks like a Jean Benet Ramsay Blow Up Doll that got gang banged & popped flat by a group of illegal migrant workers smoking meth in a shack on a Georgia Peanut Farm. And she made a whole twenty cent for it. Get glasses!

    "The family is certain this show will be a success. "Courtney is No. 1 in ratings for whatever she does," Keller said of her daughter.

    Courtney and Doug’s show has yet to find a network."

    Yeah, she's #1 at failing, too.

      This has nothing on how hot she is! I can agree who the heck is she?? And all we need is another reality show! And really who care about how old the old fart is that she married anyways.
      Heck I guess they will have to bring back superman or something so we will have something good to watch. LOL!

      I know them exclusively from being made fun of on The Soup. Are they famous for something else?

      he's a one timer actor and she is a media w hore. her mother is greedy. oh and if you see an interview with them you will see why she is in this position.she was raised to believe she is gods gift to mankind. My driveway has more brains than that nut case. They will never get on tv and if they do it won't last. she will then get divorced and he will be more broke. hollywood is so sad. she could always take off her clothes and make a few bucks.

      Pretty pathetic gold digger. If she were a true digger, she wouldn't need someone who needed her for a reality show.
