Clay Aiken's election loss will be an Esquire limited series
Clay Aiken may not have won his race for Congress, but the "American Idol" and "Celebrity Apprentice" has at least gotten another reality show out of the deal.
Esquire announced this week that it will air a four-part documentary series in early 2015 following Aiken's intriguing election loss in North Carolina's second district.
“We were granted incredible access during the making of this documentary, and in turn were able to capture the internal workings of an American campaign – the good, the bad and the ugly," blurbs executive producer Simon Chinn of Lightbox. Adds Jonathan Chinn, “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Esquire Network, who are tackling topics that are not only popular and entertaining but also smart and thoughtful.”
The series is currently without a title, unless you think "The Untitled Clay Aiken Campaign Project (title TBD)" is going to stick.
"Ultimately, this series is a raw and honest look at American politics through an incredibly unique and compelling candidate,” stated Esquire Network’s head of original programming Matt Hanna. “The opportunity to work with amazing documentarians Simon and Jonathan Chinn, gave Esquire Network the perfect opportunity to explore politics and its intersection with celebrity."
