MTV has ordered eight episodes of a reality show focused on rapper T.I. doing community service ahead of his one-year prison sentence, which he will start serving in the spring of 2009, reports.

The series has already captured T.I.’s release from house arrest and will begin shooting full-time this summer as he performs his 1,000 hours of community service. The show will also chronicle the release of his new album, Paper Trail, and the birth of his first child, and will likely air soon after T.I. goes to jail.
