E! wants to help you get inside the mind of Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochtewith its upcoming series, What Would Ryan Do?

The cable network announced at Monday’s Television Press Tour in Pasadena, Calif. that it has picked up a weekly six-episode series starring the handsome swimmer, which will premiere in April.

“Ryan Lochte captured everyone’s attention at the Summer Olympics with his athletic prowess and his utterly unique and unaffected approach to life,” E! Entertainment President Suzanne Kolb said in a statement.

“He is an incredibly endearing personality who is sexy, entertaining and fun,” she continued. “Watching this show, I believe people will fall into three categories: they want to be him, sleep with him or mother him.”

The series promises to follow the Gainesville, Fla. resident from the pool to the clubs and going after his dream of becoming a fashion designer.

Back in August, Celebuzz was the first to report that the Olympian was in talks with E! for a reality series.

“Pretty much, they follow me on my normal day, just training, doing my own fashion line,” the 28-year-old told us of the show’s concept.

Lochte’s Olympic teammate and sometimes rival Michael Phelpshas also signed on to a reality project. He’ll improve his golf game on the Golf Channel’s fifth season of The Haney Project premiering on Feb. 25.

Are you looking forward to finding out what Ryan would do?
