The club, subject of a recent New Times feature chronicling the lives of its owner, promoters, and dancers, could make the leap from niche hip-hop fame to full-fledged celebrity with a new reality show set right up on the main stage, according to reports.
According to the blog Baller Alert, an undisclosed television network has picked up a show about the inner workings of KOD. It's called Make It Rain, naturally. And there's a trailer.
Granted, Baller Alert isn't exactly the last word in investigative reporting, and the post claiming the show is a go doesn't even name sources. But the trailer above looks, well, like something we can imagine playing after an episode of The Bad Girls Club. This isn't the first time we've heard about a reality show featuring the club. And as KOD seeks to maintain its status at the top of the Miami strip club scene, a reality show could be the perfect solution.
We're awaiting official comment from the club itself. Our girl Skrawberry, for her part, says she's not involved.
"Idk anything about a KOD show," she told us last night via text. "Even though I would love to have my very own!"

For reasons that seemed sound at the time, she gave up her life of professional island-hopping to join New Times' staff in 2011. She left the paper in 2014 to start a family, but two years and two babies later, she returned in the hopes that someone on staff would agree to babysit. No takers yet.
