John O'Hurley

The afterglow from the ABC summer smash, "Dancing With the Stars" lingers on for actor John O'Hurley, who has inked a deal to topline his own unscripted TV series. GRB Entertainment, producer of the Fox summer series, "Princes of Malibu," has pacted with O'Hurley to develop and produce a similar unscripted comedy.

Brant Pinvidic will create and executive produce the project, which GRB will pitch to the networks in the next few weeks. The deal coincides with GRB's promotion of Pinvidic to senior Vice President of Development, reporting to company President-CEO Gary Benz. Pinvidic, who executive produces 'Princes,' had been Vice President.

The untitled O'Hurley project will explore his everyday life, including his role as a partner in the real-life J. Peterman Co. Before 'Stars,' O'Hurley was best known for playing the fictional Peterman on "Seinfeld." Pinvidic said, "We're going to do an unscripted comedy playing on John's improv skills. Everybody who watched 'Dancing' could see he's a really genuinely funny person. We want to give him a chance to use those skills."

Should a network pick up the O'Hurley project, it would represent the latest example of reality breakout stars snagging their own series. VH1 has ordered several shows featuring the stars of its "Surreal Life," while Bravo recently announced a spinoff special starring the winner of "Project Runway."

FROM TV GUIDE: Entertainment News

HERE HE IS...: John O'Hurley is milking his Dancing defeat for all its worth. In addition to next month's Dance-Off, the beloved hoofer has been tapped to host the 29th annual Mrs. America competition, airing Sept. 7 live on WE. Of course, with greater fame comes greater headaches: Assisting O'Hurley with the emcee duties will be Omatrocious Manigault-Stallworth. Unless Janice Dickinson can cut the break lines on her used KIA in time. (For more on O'Hurley's burgeoning career, read today's Soaps News.)
