David Hasselhoff is set to play himself in a spoof show about his life.
The former Baywatch star is in talks with TV producers to star in dark comedy Tales of the Hoff, a fictional look at the actor's experience of trying to make as a Hollywood heavyweight and how the divorced father-of-two copes with the dating scene.
A source said: "David is really excited about the project. So much is written about his off screen adventures, he is relishing the chance to ridicule the rumours."
American Idol host Ryan Seacrest will produce the show, along with Hasselhoff, Dan O'Keefe and Eliot Goldberg.
Hasselhoff â€“ who now appears as a judge on US talent show America's Got Talent â€“ inspired TV bosses to make the show after he told friends his life story would make great television.
The former Knight Rider star recently revealed he wants to turn daughters Taylor Ann, 17, and Hayley Amber, 14, into pop stars.
He said: "I am working on producing my daughters because both of them can sing.
"I said I was going to wait until they're ready. Now my dreams have come true, and I am going to help them live theirs."
