Pitbull and Harvey Weinstein team up on two reality shows

SHARE Pitbull and Harvey Weinstein team up on two reality shows

Can’t say I’ve ever seen Pitbull’s name and that of entertainment world mogul Harvey Weinstein’s used in the same sentence, but the two men are now in business together.

Weinstein’s company is producing two separate reality shows — both built around Pitbull, the platinum-selling rapper and cross-over Latin star. One show will focus on Pitbull’s world tour, his recording sessions and real-life behind the scenes.

The second program will be “The REAL Change Project,” with Pitbull engaged with the likes of Michelle Obama, Tony Bennett, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney and Kobe Bryant. The show will look back at the obstacles each high-profile celebrity faced in their youth, that they overcame in their formative years. Also in the spotlight will be the mentors who helped the now-successful individuals succeed in their lives.

The show will also feature live performances and raise funds for teachers and educational programs worldwide.
