Federline, an aspiring model, actor and singer, has been shopping around a reality show that will chronicle his professional life as he records and promotes his first album, a source tells PEOPLE. No record deal has been announced, but Federline met with executives at E! Entertainment Television on April 1 and pitched himself as the next Eminem.
E! has yet to offer him a deal, but Federline is getting a boost from the missus. Spears is hooking her man up with top music producers to help launch his debut album, says a source. And contrary to those Federline critics who "want to make him out to be the 'taker,' he is really not," says a friend of the couple's. "He's just trying to do his best being in the spotlight."
But like true newlyweds, "Kevin went and got his wife as soon as he got back to the hotel," says a source. "He carried her dog (Bitbit) back to their hotel room and was laughing and joking around with her." Later that evening the couple walked out on the patio of their hotel bungalow for a kiss.
"She likes to buy him gifts and make him happy and vice versa," says a source. "They are sweet on each other."
A six-episode reality series documenting the couple's courtship and marriage is due to premiere on UPN before the end of next month.
