E! SHINES THE SPOTLIGHT ON “KHLOÉ & LAMAR” IN NEW SERIES ABOUT THE POWER COUPLE’S LIFE TOGETHER
Ryan Seacrest Productions and Bunim-Murray Productions to Begin filming in Early 2011 on the Latest Installment in the Kardashian Saga
Los Angeles, 2011 – When Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom said “I do” in 2009, it was front-page celebrity news throughout the world. Now, the power couple is putting their life together at the center of a new television series, when the cameras begin rolling on “Khloé & Lamar” (working title) in early 2011. In the new series, the outspoken Kardashian sister and the Los Angeles Lakers star will invite cameras into their home, where Khloé’s brother Robert Kardashian has become a semi-permanent houseguest. “Khloé & Lamar” (working title) was announced today by Lisa Berger, Executive Vice President, Entertainment Programming for E!
“Khloé and Lamar are such a dynamic couple that we just knew we had to give them their own series,” said Berger. “They are fascinating individuals in their own right, and together the duo are 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 “Kourtney & Khloé Take Miami,” she hosted her own call-in radio show, and then in 2009 Khloé sent shockwaves through the family when she announced just one month after they began dating that she would marry superstar L.A. Laker Lamar 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.
Now that they have their first 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. Sharing space under the Odom roof is Khloé’s brother, Robert, who is embarking on his own career in the music industry now that he is no longer living with mom Kris and step-dad Bruce Jenner.
We’ll also follow Lamar both in Los Angeles and as he hits the road to fulfill his professional duties as a member of the world-famous L.A. Lakers. Born and raised in South Jamaica, Queens, New York, Odom’s background is a world apart from the privileged upbringing Khloé enjoyed in Los Angeles. With all the drama and laughter that is certain to be a part of this new series, could Lamar’s expressed desire to “start having children right away” come into play? If so, viewers will likely be the first to find out.
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 on the series.
