The eight-part program, tentatively called The Michael Vick Project, will debut in early 2010. The show will examine Vick's return to football as well as his off-the-field life, culminating in 2007 with his arrest for running a dog-fighting ring.

"What I want to do is change the perception of me," he told the Times. "I've made some mistakes in the past, and I wish it had never happened. But it's not about how you fall, but about how you pick yourself up."
