SCHEDULED: With this week's news that their star is expecting a baby, UPN has set a May 17 premiere date for Britney Spears and husband Kevin Federline's still-untitled reality show, with the first episode going to a full hour. The network also said it will shoot new footage to go with the existing footage that the couple shot themselves. "As we all know, Britney and Kevin's life together has been played out in front of the public through Internet speculation, the gossip columnists and entertainment magazines," Dawn Ostroff, president of UPN, said in a statement. "But now, for the first time, their millions of fans will get to see and hear the couple's real story ... as told directly by them. "
