E! will be keeping up with Khloé Kardashian and her Los Angeles Laker husband, Lamar Odom, in a series set to begin filming early in '11.
In Khloé & Lamar (working title), the outspoken Kardashian sister and the NBA star will invite cameras into their home, where Khloé's brother Robert Kardashian has become a semi-permanent houseguest.
The green light came from Lisa Berger, EVP of Entertainment Programming at Comcast-owned E!
"Khloé and Lamar are such a dynamic couple that we just knew we had to give them their own series," Berger said in a release. "They are fascinating individuals in their own right, and together the duo is a powerhouse. They are funny, dramatic, opinionated, and we intend to capture all this, along with the unvarnished reality of their lives together and apart, since each is constantly followed by their own celebrity spotlight."
The most vocal and opinionated of the three sisters, Khloé was a viewer favorite in E!'s mega-successful Keeping Up With the Kardashians from the very beginning.
In E!'s Kourtney & Khloé Take Miami, she hosted her own call-in radio show.
In 2009 Khloé sent shockwaves through the family when she announced just one month after they began dating that she would marry superstar Odom. With just nine days to plan it, mom and manager Kris Kardashian Jenner pulled together a lavish wedding fit for a queen, which was attended by Los Angeles' elite and which, like the bride herself, made headlines throughout the world.
With a year of marriage behind them, Khloé and Lamar are blowing the lid off their home life and allowing the E! cameras to capture the private world they used to call their own, the network said.
The eight-episode series will be produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions and Bunim-Murray Productions. Ryan Seacrest serves as executive producer for RSP, while Jon Murray, Jeff Jenkins, Gil Goldschein and Farnaz Farjam are executive producers for BMP. Kris Jenner is also an executive producer.
