If the fine folks at Tupelo-Honey Productions are to be believed, then the answer is yes…yes he is. Let’s just pray that Jimmer’s as yet unnamed show doesn’t have any crossover episodes with Jersey Shore, lest Tupelo-Honey Productions wants to be responsible for a million Mormon heads exploding.

The 2011 Naismith and John R. Wooden Award winner signed an exclusive agreement with Tupelo-Honey Productions that will allow the company to film over 100 hours of footage of Jimmer and his family as he deals with the transition from college to the NBA.

No word on which network the Jimmer Fredette reality show will be carried on. Tupelo-Honey is in discussions with various outlets about broadcasting the show.

From ABC4.com…

Tupelo-Honey Productions (THP) will follow the drama of Jimmer’s every move as he transitions from great college player to NBA professional including: agent interaction, financial planning, training and nutrition, appearances, and private moments all the way up to the NBA Draft itself. THP will package the exclusive content for multi-purpose use across several distribution outlets. The digital packaging could include daily 2-4 minute webisodes, a daily video blog and weekly recap features. Following the thirty days, THP will produce a long-form documentary for broadcast or theatrical release.

Says Fredette about the prospect of becoming a reality TV star…

“This is an amazing time for me,” said Jimmer. “I’m looking forward to preparing for an NBA career and this project will allow me to share the excitement I’m feeling with the fans who have been with me for my college career. Putting this on the internet means basketball fans everywhere can follow this great opportunity that I’m blessed to have.”

And the runaway train that is “Jimmermania” rolls on.
