E! Orders Makeover Series Hosted by Khloe Kardashian
E! is adding another series to its already impressive Kardashian portfolio.
The NBCUniversal-owned cable network has ordered a makeover series hosted by Khloe Kardashian, E! announced Wednesday.
Each episode of Revenge Body With Khloe Kardashian will see the reality star assemble a team of Hollywood's top trainers, stylists and glam squads to help two heartbroken individuals undergo a major transformation inside and out. Each episode will end with a big reveal of their makeovers to the world and the chance to defy those who doubted them.
Six episodes have been ordered of the reality show, which is executive produced by Eli Frankel, Ryan Seacrest and Kardashian. Revenge Body is being produced by Rogue Atlas Productions in association with Lionsgate Television, KhloMoney Productions and Ryan Seacrest Productions.
“Looking great is always the best revenge,” Kardashian said in a statement. “It’s so exciting to be able to mentor these people through their full-body makeovers, and I can’t wait to see the incredible results at their final reveals!”
Added E! executive vp programming and development Jeff Olde: “We are so excited to partner with Khloe Kardashian to help these deserving people seek the ultimate revenge. By tapping her unlimited resources, Khloe offers transformations of true Hollywood proportions.”
The order continues E!'s longstanding relationship with the Kardashian family, which also includes docuseries Keeping Up With the Kardashians and its several spinoffs, as well as I Am Cait, which was recently picked up for a second season. However, unlike those other projects, Revenge Body is not being produced by Bunim/Murray Productions.
“When Eli Frankel brought us this terrific idea, it was clear that this series is exactly the type of show that we are looking to do as Lionsgate grows its unscripted programming slate,” said Jennifer O’Connell, Lionsgate Television's exec vp alternative programming. “We are thrilled to be working with Khloe, Ryan and the entire team at E!, who are on the forefront of pop culture.”
The announcement comes after the release of Kardashian's latest book, Strong Looks Better Naked. In addition to Revenge Body, Kardashian also will host a new primetime talk show on FYI titled Kocktails With Khloe.
