E! has greenlit a reality series about the Los Angeles Rams football team.

Hollywood & Football will follow six players and their families as they move from St. Louis to Los Angeles and adjust to their new lives.

Earlier this year, NFL team owners voted 30-2 to allow the Rams to relocate from the Midwest back to Los Angeles after 20 years away from the city.

The NBCUniversal-owned cable net has ordered a 6 x 60-minute series, which will debut in the fall. The program is being produced by T Group Productions with Jenny DalyRob Lobl and Shauna Thomas exec producing.

The cast includes wide receiver Kenny Britt and his wife Sabrina, offensive lineman Rodger Saffold and his wife Asia, tight end Lance Kendricks and his wife Danielle, running back Chase Reynolds and his wife Kila, wide receiver Bradley Marquez and his pregnant fiancée Melissa Hernandez, and fullback Cory Harkey and his wife Bianca.

“E! has a track record of success with pop culture programming centered in the world of sports, and this series will capture the off-the-field perspective of one of football’s most anticipated and high-profile events as the Rams return to LA,” said E!’s programming and development executive VP Jeff Olde in a statement.
