Alan Thicke and his wife Tanya Callau give ET Canada the inside scoop on their brand new reality TV show called, “In The Thicke Of Things” that will air on Slice this fall.
During our live online chat, Tanya reveals, “you’re gonna see a lot of funny stuff is what you’re going to see.”; Alan agrees, adding, “it’s going to be a real life version of “Modern Family”, you have the hot young Latina, the teenage boy and the calm, cool aging Canadian.”
And you can expect to see his elder son Robin on the show: “We of course want to have Robin on the show… I’ll go through his manager, and his agent and his publicist and all of that, but we’ll track him down.”
The proud papa also says – no surprise here – his current favourite song is “Blurred Lines” by his son Robin, but says he couldn’t do it justice on our live chat, “not without my whole band here…” But he did do us the honour of singing a line from his second favourite hit, the “Diff’rent Strokes” theme song, which he co-wrote back in the day.
