Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton is set to appear in an upcoming reality series about gay dads living and raising their families in New York City.

According to Deadline, the docu-series, titled Gay Dads of New York, is being produced by Bunim/Murray Productions, the team behind MTV's The Real World, and is currently casting.

“What is your typical American family like?” Hilton, who welcomed his son Mario in February, wrote in a press release. “These days, it looks a lot like mine! I am honored and excited to bring to television a show that will be filled with love, humor and drama. What will it not be? Trashy or boring! I am thrilled to have partnered with the leaders and innovators of reality television, Bunim/Murray, to create a program that is compelling and real. Up until now people know me more for my opinions than who I am. This show will give viewers the opportunity to get to know the 'real' Perez Hilton and my family, as well as some other really dynamic gay dads, and the women that make up their support system. I am a recent transplant to New York City, looking for friends and open to – hopefully – love. To new beginnings and this exciting new venture!”

Jonathan Murray, chairman of Bunim/Murray Production said that as a partnered gay dad he immediately responded to the concept

“Whether it's a single dad like Perez, or married gay dads, becoming a gay parent affects your relationships with family and friends, all of which will make fascinating stories,” he said.
