TVLine Items: Palin's New Gig, Entourage Eyes Sheen, Fox Renewals, and More News to Know
Bristol Palin has landed her own reality show, courtesy of BIO Channel. The docu-series will follow the single mom’s big move from the 49th state to Los Angeles, with two-year-old son Tripp, in order to work for a small West Coast charity. The Dancing Star That Could(n’t) will be crashing with Disney actor Kyle Massey, who became friends with Palin during their shared time on DWTS.
No word yet on a launch date for the riveting new series.

• HBO’s Entourage thinks the key to “winning” over fans in its final season involves a guest spot from Charlie Sheen. “I called his manager and was told maybe I’d get him,” showrunner Doug Ellin tells TV Guide Magazine. “But I’m still waiting for Charlie to call me back. I’d come up with something good.” Can’t see why this deal wouldn’t pan out — it’s not like Sheen has a show to call his own these days.
• Showtime just released a teasery trailer for the sixth season of Dexter (now starring Colin Hanks!), and all we can say is…wow. September can’t get here fast enough. (Side note: Is it weird to you that Lumen/Jordan Chase/Season 5 aren’t mentioned at all?)
• Scott Baio has landed the lead in Nick at Nite’s new sitcom,
Charles Still In Charge Daddy’s Home, says Deadline. There, he’ll play — you guessed it — a stay-at-home father. Baio will also executive-produce the project alongside friends Eric Bischoff (WWE) and Jason Hervey (The Wonder Years).
