Bending it for TV

UK celebrity couple David and Victoria Beckham will be joined by an actor to perk things up in an upcoming reality series charting their move to the US.

The show, produced by American Idol creator and former Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller, will feature a security guard-type character who will provoke the famous couple into hilarious situations.

A television executive told a UK newspaper, the Sunday Express, "Simon is convinced David and Victoria will be the next big thing on UStelevision.

"They just need a little extra help getting there."

The Beckhams are moving to Los Angeles after David signed with the LA Galaxy soccer team earlier this year. - Wenn
