Sometimes it seems as though there couldn't possibly be another Kardashian-fronted TV show. But the world's thirst for reality's first family is unabated as mothership Keeping Up With the Kardashians sashays into its 10th season and a buzzy project about patriarch Bruce Jenner looms on the horizon.

But what of the Kardashian Kingdom's king and queen? Kim might spread her time over multiple series, but Kanye typically remains off camera. For The Hollywood Reporter's annual reality power issue, top producers were polled on how they'd frame a Kimye reality show if they were given carte blanche.

Here's how they responded.
