La La Vasquez, Carmelo AnthonyTalk about timing: Just one day into Carmelo Anthony's tenure as a New York Knick and already the basketball star has a reality TV deal.

VH1 announced today that it will air a new docuseries following Anthony and his TV host wife, La La Vazquez, as they move their family from Colorado to New York City following his Tuesday trade from the Denver Nuggets to the Knicks.

According to the New York Post, the network began filming the couple in January for a show tentatively titled 'La La's Full Court Life.' The series is a follow-up of sorts to last fall's five-episode wedding special, 'La La's Full Court Wedding,' which documented the duo's July 2010 nuptials. The new 10-episode series is scheduled to premiere in August.

"Viewers connect with La La because despite the fairy-tale wedding and NBA star husband, she is a real, down-to-earth, hardworking woman who stays true to herself," Jeff Olde, EVP of Original Programming and Production at VH1, told the post. "The best thing about the new series is that while pursuing and realizing her dreams, La La gets to take us back to her home in New York, where her story began."

Vazquez has hosted numerous 'Flavor of Love' reunion specials for VH1, as well as MTV's 'Total Request Live' and 'High School Stories.' Anthony is expected to play his first game for the Knicks tonight.
