David Hasselhoff

is leaving America’s Got Talent. The former Baywatch actor, who was hospitalized a number of times in 2009, claims to be working on an as-yet-unknown TV program.

“I am proud that I was part of making the number one rated show for the past four summers,” the 57-year-old actor said. “It’s been a rewarding experience and now I’m thrilled to be able to follow my dream to do my own TV show, which will be announced very shortly.”

Hasselhoff will be leaving a gap on Talent‘s judging panel. No names have yet been suggested to fill the seat next to Sharon Osbourne and Piers Morgan. “David’s been an integral part of America’s Got Talent and we are sad to see him go,” NBC said in a statement.

It’s believed Hasselhoff may be in participating in a new series for cable. Back in October, daughter Hayley tweeted: “The Hasselhoffs signed the deal with A + E… Get ready for it.”
