What You See Is Not Necessarily What You Get When E!'s New Series "Ice Loves Coco" Premieres June 12th at 10:30PM ET/PT Only on E!

Superstar Performer Ice-T and Voluptuous Wife Coco Prove You Can't Judge a Book By Its Cover

Los Angeles, April 26, 2011 - Over the past six decades, TV couples like Desi/Lucy, Mork/Mindy and Ozzy/Sharon have demonstrated that sometimes the most unconventional pairings make for the most compelling viewing, and in their first-ever series about their marriage and family life, Ice-T and Coco follow that tradition. In this eight-episode, half-hour series, E! takes viewers behind the hype and conjecture and into the daily lives of rapper/actor/author/motivational speaker Ice and his fitness/swimsuit model/Internet-sensation buxom and bootylicious wife Coco. The two have been married ten years and remain inseparable, having spent only one day apart in all that time. From the start, Coco dedicated herself to becoming the woman behind her man, and is the heart and soul of the family brand. But, now that she has a series of projects of her own on the horizon, Coco has set her sights on establishing a solo career while maintaining balance in her relationship. With a loving and adventurous take on life, this over the top celebrity couple will blow expectations to smithereens when "Ice Loves Coco" premieres June 12th at 10:30pm ET/PT only on E!

"Their public personas are larger than life and completely unpredictable, yet what we find is their foundation is a very strong, traditional marriage. The two of them give us a great peek into a celebrity lifestyle with heart at the core," said Lisa Berger, President, Entertainment Programming for E!

In addition to his acclaimed music career, for twelve seasons Ice has starred on NBC's hit series "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" as Detective Odafin Tutuola, and also is an accomplished author who just recently released his autobiography, "Ice: A Memoir of Gangster Life and Redemption-from South Central to Hollywood," through Random House Books. Coco began her modeling career competing in swimsuit competitions and posing for swimsuit and lingerie catalogues and calendars. After her marriage to Ice in 2001, Coco began managing her husband's daily affairs so that he could focus on his career. These seemingly opposites came from different parts of the country, but are remarkably similar. Both grew up poor (in Los Angeles and Albuquerque respectively) and have had to overcome great adversity to make a happy life for themselves. They now reside in an East Coast penthouse with their dog Spartacus. The couple also has homes in Miami and Arizona, not far from Coco's mom and sister.

During the series' inaugural season, Ice is ready to assist Coco in taking her career to the next level and wants to help shine the spotlight more on her. Cameras will follow Coco during her daily duties as she keeps Ice's daily life in order, while trying to build her own brand from her personal office Coco's goal is to build a brand around her unique, sexy and quirky persona, while keeping focus on her main priority: her marriage. Her first venture lands her in the world of bridal gown fashion when she becomes the face of House of Bridal Couture. Seeing herself in a wedding dress unlocks deep-rooted emotions about marriage and family, since she and Ice never had a proper church wedding. She also begins to consider having children; however, feelings come crashing to the forefront when Coco's sister announces she is pregnant with her 5th child. When sister Kristy asks Coco to assists in the delivery, Coco quickly agrees only to realize later that she may be in way over her head.

Coco also thinks that Spartacus, the couple's adorable English Bulldog, also has a face for fame- as wrinkly and slobbery as it may be. However, acting classes, headshots, and finding the right doggie agent prove to be more difficult than expected, and Ice is not quite prepared for the idea of a four-legged actor in the family.

There's no better way to beat the summer heat than with a serving of Coco with Ice! Don't miss the series premiere of "Ice Loves Coco" on June 12th at 10:30pm ET/PT only on E!
