Prince Family Starts Talking Up A Reality Show

Prince’s estate reportedly wants to use the late singer’s unreleased music for a new reality TV show.

When Prince passed away in April, 2016 of an accidental Fentanyl overdose at the age of 57, the music icon left a treasure trove of new material behind.

Prince’s mixing and recording engineer, George Ian Boxill, was in the process of releasing the tracks on to a six-track EP, titled Deliverance, to mark the one year anniversary of the Purple Rain hitmaker’s death, but Prince’s estate and Paisley Park filed a lawsuit blocking its release.

Now, editors at are reporting that Prince’s estate stopped Deliverance from hitting shelves and streaming services because they want the music to feature in a reality show featuring Prince’s family.

The program will apparently centre on how life has changed for them since the singer’s untimely death.

TMZ also reports that production of the show is in the early stages right now, and no broadcasting deal has yet been made.

Deliverance was due to be released on April 21, which was exactly a year after Prince died. Boxill completed arrangements on the six new tracks, finished the production and mixed the songs, which were recorded between 2006 and 2008.

Prince’s estate had been awarded a restraining order to stop the album’s release and ordered Boxill to turn over all the recordings, which are estimated to have a value of more than $75,000 (£58,500), but he’s still fighting this decision.

A hearing will take place before the restraining order is due to expire on May 3.
