Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison want to show you more.

The 16-year-old former beauty queen/aspiring actress and pop singer and her 51-year-old actor husband appeared on an Australian morning show recently to reveal that they're being "seduced" by producers to do a reality TV show.

"We're in negotiations right now with a very prominent producer, and we're talking about the possibility of bringing it to network," "Lost" actor Hutchison said.

With their pink-haired dog in hand, Stodden gushed, "It's going to be a reality show like no other."

Indeed. Not since Jerry Lee Lewis married his 13-year-old cousin has a May-December romance been quite so scandalous. When Hutchison married Stodden in May, their 35-year age difference set the Internet ablaze.

She's never been to high school or driven a car. He's best known for playing the abusive prison guard in the Oscar-nominated movie "The Green Mile." In July, Hutchison told ABC's "Good Morning America" that he was down and out -- twice divorced and battling alcoholism -- when he met Stodden last year.

"The way we met was really beautiful," Stodden said in the same interview. "My mother was managing my career. Her friend told my mother that [Hutchison was] holding some workshops for acting. And I was very interested in acting. So what better way than to connect that way?"

"She sent me an email. And our exchange, at first, was just really about business," Hutchison said.

"Totally innocent," Stodden added.

He was in Hollywood, and she was in Washington state: hundreds of miles apart, but slowly growing closer. Hutchison claimed Stodden made the first move toward romance.

"Did I?" Stodden said, laughing.

"Yeah, she was being very flirtatious," Hutchison said.

"Well come on, he's so handsome," Stodden said.

Their back-and-forth was a glimpse of what a reality show starring the couple could be like. Whether that (and the pink haired dog) will be enough to make viewers tune in remains to be seen.
