Sylvester Stallone and his family are about to embark on a new project together: their reality show, The Stallone Family, produced and directed by Stallone himself in partnership with Paramount+. The show, which was first teased in February, is set to have eight episodes and will explore the best phase of Stallone’s life as a father.
This show will be a game-changer for Stallone, who is stepping out of his comfort zone and into reality television, exposing his personal life to millions of viewers around the world. The program will delve into the personal lives of the entire family and will showcase their lavish lifestyle, problems, intimate conversations, respective romantic relationships, breakups, and details not often seen in public.
On the screen, viewers will see Sylvester Stallone, his wife Jennifer Flavin, and their daughters Sistine, Sophia, and Scarlet, as well as their pets, and close family friends. Although the format is similar to Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Stallone said in an interview that this was never the plan. Instead, he wants to show the authenticity of his daughters and his wife Jennifer Flavin.
“I love my daughters; I love my wife and I wanted to share that. It’s something that I think is entertaining,” Stallone said. The Family Stallone is a show that comes to streaming without a script or set takes. Stallone explained that he didn’t want it to be about getting drunk and yelling at each other. He wanted to show real-life situations.
The show’s first episodes will premiere on Paramount+ this May 17, and Stallone has confirmed that it will extend to a couple more seasons. Despite the criticism that reality shows have received over the years and the veracity questions, Stallone is defending the idea of making a family reality show.
“It’s an opportunity to be with my daughters in working conditions where they will see me in action and I will see them in action. What you will see is the pure truth. This is a great opportunity,” Stallone explained. For him, the show is a way to make up for lost time spent away from home, doing projects that kept him busy and away from his daughters.
“I thought [the reality show] would be the best home movie. I don’t see it as stooping to conquer. But every time you go in a different direction, people say, ‘Oh God, you must be in trouble [financially].’ It’s the opposite,” Stallone added. With this new project, Stallone is excited to share more of his authentic self with his fans while getting closer to the people he loves.
