Channing Tatum is producing a reality show based on his New Orleans burlesque club.

The actor's new TV project will take the cameras behind the red curtains and follow the entertainers who work at Saints and Sinners, a venue which he opened with his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum and friend Keith Kurtz last year.

Channing, who welcomed baby daughter Everly on 31 May with wife Jenna, confirmed the news on his Twitter account last night (29 October).

A statement on the club's website read: "We're getting a reality show! Coming soon, you'll be able to check out all the behind the scenes action as cameras follow the entertainers of our Saints and Sinners, which is quickly becoming New Orleans' hottest hotspot."

It's not yet known whether the 33-year-old actor will be featuring in the show or staying behind the camera, but we're sure fans wouldn't mind seeing him rework some of his dance moves from strip movie Magic Mike!

Currently in its pilot stage, the untitled project is scheduled to air next year on US network A&E, and we're hoping it'll be shown in the UK too!

Acting is still a number one priority for Channing, who can be seen in upcoming films 22 Jump Street, Foxcatcher and Jupiter Ascending. Next year, he'll also lend his voice to animated comedy, Book of Life, alongside Zoe Saldana and Christina Applegate.

That's not all though, as Channing has also signed up to executive produce new CBS comedy Nicky, which is about a young man growing up in a multi-generational family run by women in New Jersey. There's no stopping him!
