What does bad behavior get you? Why, your own reality show, of course. Controversial Los Angeles Laker forward Ron Artest is set to develop, produce and star in his own reality series, 'They Call Me Crazy.'

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series will document the "ups and downs of Artest's life," allowing him to "make amends for past transgressions," announced E1 Entertainment, which will distribute the series.

"I'm really excited to have the opportunity to invite people into my world to see the real me, and show them there are many more sides to the Ron Artest they see on the basketball court," Artest said in a statement. His "past transgressions" include a 2004 incident when the B-baller attacked a fan in the stands during a Pacers-Pistons brawl, as well as headline-making antics off the court.What does bad behavior get you?

"This show will allow me to share my experiences with others, and hopefully people can learn from the mistakes I've made," he added.

Artest's series will also showcase his hip-hop label, Tru Warier, as he helps aspiring musicians, along with E1 Music.

E1 recently announced plans for a reality show for hip-hop artist Faith Evans and a half-hour children's television series with KISS co-founders and frontmen Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley.
