TNT has ordered a new unscripted series called "Rhodes to the Top". The show will take a closer look at the Rhodes household as Cody and Brandi prepare to become parents while managing their AEW duties.
TNT issued a statement following the announcement on Dynamite:
"Tonight's action-packed episode of 'AEW DYNAMITE' delivered another special announcement for soon-to-be parents Cody and Brandi Rhodes. TNT has ordered a new unscripted series, 'Rhodes to the Top', from Warner Bros. Unscripted Television in association with Shed Media, that will go inside the lives of Cody and Brandi as they navigate their growing family while building AEW's global wrestling empire."
The series will have 30-minute episodes, and each episode will focus on how AEW's power couple navigate through their hectic daily lives. The series will also feature behind-the-scenes footage from AEW, and it indeed has all the makings of being an entertaining reality show.
"Each 30-minute episode will take viewers behind-the-scenes as the powerhouse couple manage their ever-busier lives inside and outside the ring, all the while surrounded by a colorful and often hilarious motley crew of wrestlers, family, and friends who both support and test them at every turn. Married in 2013, Cody and Brandi have been on an unprecedented path to wrestling greatness but will now face their newest and possibly biggest challenge yet."
