Deion "Prime Time" Sanders, the NFL Hall-of-Famer, made headlines for engaging in a divorce battle last year but now he may be ready to tell his story on OWN network.

Sanders, 45, will appear on media maven Oprah Winfrey's OWN network in a show called "Prime Time" that will debut next year, deadline.com reports. The upcoming docu-series will be about 'the crazy and chaotic family life' of former NFL star Deion Sanders."

Sanders tweeted a link to The Hollywood Reporter article announcing his upcoming show before tweeting, "God is Good! Truth."

The article speaks about Sanders' plans to showcase his career as an NFL network broadcaster while he raises five children with his mother, her foster children, extended family and his girlfriend and entertainment mogul Tracey Edmonds' family. This is not Sanders' first docu-series.

In 2008, the former NFL star appeared in the series Deion & Pilar: Prime Time Love alongside his ex-wife on Oxygen network. Earlier this year, Sanders, the NFL Hall-of-Famer, was granted custody of his children shared with his estranged wife Pilar Sanders.

After the verdict, the NFL player-turned-network analyst took to his Twitter account to give glory to God.

"Thank all of you whom prayed for me and my children. The Truth is what it is," he tweeted. "Never doubt God! Truth."

Earlier during the custody battle, Sanders spoke about his estranged wife's issues.

"(Pilar) is still searching. She doesn't know what she wants to be," Sanders said of his estranged wife to DallasNews.com. "When someone tries to destroy everything you are and everything you stand for, that's kind of hard. It's hard to communicate when you know the fabric of that person."

Last April, a domestic altercation took place at the former couple's $5.7 million home where each alleged that they were attacked by the other. However, a judge ruled that the Hall of Famer was only defending himself against Pilar's assault.
