Sylvester Stallone and family to star in reality TV series
Hollywood action star Sylvester Stallone and his family will star in the upcoming reality TV series The Family Stallone.
The 76-year-old American actor – a fixture in action movies like The Expendables, Rocky and Rambo – will be letting cameras into his home to give a behind-the-scenes look at his life.
On Thursday, Paramount+ announced that Stallone, his wife Jennifer Flavin Stallone and daughters Sophia, Sistine and Scarlet will also star in the eight-part series.
The streaming platform said The Family Stallone will provide an inside look at the “man, the myth and the legend” while focusing on “building for the future and raising three independent and ambitious women.”
Scarlet, his youngest child, is currently appearing alongside her father in The Tulsa King as she plays a former waitress who takes care of his horse while he acts as a mobster.
Also following Stallone into show business is Sistine, an actress and model who starred in Midnight In The Switchgrass alongside Megan Fox and Bruce Willis.
She is currently working on a feature film.
The eldest of the three Stallone sisters, Sophia co-hosts the Unwaxed podcast with Sistine and is said to be “still finding her way in life and focusing on her passions”.
In 2017, the trio became Golden Globe Ambassadors, also known as Miss Golden Globes, which is usually awarded to the son or daughter of a famous artist.
The family matriarch, Stallone’s wife Jennifer, 54 – born and raised in LA, is a businesswoman, former model and co-owner of wellness brand Serious Skin Care.
They married in London in 1997 after dating, breaking up and reconciling for several years in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
In August 2022, she filed for divorce after 25 years of marriage, and according to US outlets, they reconciled a month later.
Stallone was nominated for a Leading Actor Oscar at the 49th Academy Awards in 1977 for his portrayal of boxer Rocky Balboa.
This was followed by six more Rocky films, spanning from 1976 to 2006, and then also appearing as a character in the spin-off film Creed, which was directed by Black Panther’s Ryan Coogler.
Stallone also had five Rambo sequels, about a United States Army Special Forces soldier of the same name, and four episodes of The Expendables, which starred Harrison Ford, Jason Statham, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
He also shares two sons with his former wife and photographer Sasha Czack, aka Sage Moonblood, an actor who died in 2012 and also starred in Rocky V and Seargeoh.
The Family Stallone will begin Paramount+ in the US and Canada in the spring before launching internationally.
