Iaconelli Movie or Series to Be Created by Fox Studios
While in Los Angeles for the Jimmy Kimmel show, Ike signed a deal with Fox Studios to create a movie, or series about his life. The project is currently under development, and Fox has several years to decide the direction, medium, casting, etc.
Ike himself may or may not play a major roll in the project. Initially Ike will be a consultant for Fox Studios, but there may be room for more involvement as things progress.
What's Ike's favorite part about the deal? "Just the potential of getting professional fishing to that level, meaning to have a movie or a TV series, to have that kind of recognition, non-traditional recognition of professional bass fishing - that's the best thing about it."
