The couple has signed on to headline a chat show, titled Ice & Coco, and their three-week trial begins on 3 August (15) in select American markets, including New York City and Los Angeles.

If the test run proves to be a success, the show could be picked up for a full series.

The programme will feature the couple's colourful commentary on hot topics and interviews with celebrity guests.

In a new joint statement, Ice-T and Austin insist the show will be "fun... with our own style of hip, married humor and honesty."

The couple is no stranger to television, after top-lining a reality series called Ice Loves Coco for three seasons. Ice-T also stars in TV cop drama Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
