NEW YORK (AP) - Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes already get a lot of tabloid attention.

Now the 40-year-old actor and his singer-actress wife are parlaying their notoriety into a new VH1 series tentatively titled, “LeAnn & Eddie.”

The six-episode series is scheduled to debut later this year or in early 2014.

A statement released Wednesday said the show will “bring the truth and make fun of all the gossip” about the couple, but doesn’t say specifically whether it will be scripted or a reality series.

In a recent interview with The Associated Press, the 30-year-old Rimes said she and Cibrian were interested in doing “a show based in reality. ... A scripted show based around our lives.” She said they had been approached numerous times to do an actual reality series, but “that kind of typical model doesn’t work for us.”

The couple wed in 2011. They met while filming the Lifetime movie “Northern Lights.” Cibrian’s ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, is a cast member on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”
