Pitbull, Michelle Obama and Paul McCartney are three famous names that do not usually appear together on a TV show line-up. Until today, that is.

US rapper Pitbull is making two reality TV series with The Weinstein Company and one will see him meet leading figures from the worlds of music, politics and sport, Deadline reports.

Currently titled The REAL Change Project, the "Timber" star will interview various guests, reportedly including Obama, McCartney, Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett and Kobe Bryant, about their careers, obstacles they have overcome and the people who inspire them.

There will be live performances and the shows will fundraise for school teachers around the world.

Harvey Weinstein describes the planned concept as a "phenomenal opportunity [to] show what’s behind the curtain".


Pitbull's second project, Pitbull: The Lyfe, will follow his fast-paced life in the studio and on tour.

He performed the 2014 World Cup anthem "We Are One (Ole Ola)" in Brazil last summer with Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte and was recently announced as the next American Music Awards host.

Both new shows are yet to be commissioned by a network, but according to Pitbull, "the party kicks off in 2015".
