Britney Backer
Scores TV Development Deal

Chris Crocker has generated so much buzz around his "Leave Britney Alone" YouTube video that he signed a development deal with reality producers, 44 Blue Productions.

The deal is to develop a "docusoap" around the 19-year-old Internet star from Tennessee, according to Variety. 44 Blue executives said that they want to create the series around Crocker's strength.

Crocker's emotional defense of pop singer Britney Spears's performance at the MTV awards last weekend garnered 8 million views in one week.

"Chris first got on our radar a year ago," 44 Blue cofounder Rasha Drachkovitch said in Variety Wednesday. "It's going to pretty much be the 'Chris Crocker experience,' " he said. "We consider him a rebel character that people will find interesting. He's going to be a TV star." (The Advocate)
