Paris Hilton is plotting a return to television.
The entrepreneur and former reality star has signed an overall deal with Warner Bros. Unscripted Television. Under the deal, Hilton will develop, produce and potentially star in unscripted formats for Mike Darnell-led unit. Hilton and veteran media executive Bruce Gersh have formed Slivington Manor Entertainment, and Gersh will be an executive producer of any projects to result from the WB pact.
The deal represents a reunion between Hilton and Darnell, who as head of alternative programming at Fox helped propel Hilton’s rise to fame with The Simple Life.
“Launching Slivington Manor Entertainment is a dream come true and I am so excited to continue connecting with my fans across the globe both in front of the camera and as a producer,” said Hilton. “I am looking forward to working with the incredible Warner Bros. team to create new thought provoking and inspirational long-form content and am beyond thrilled to reunite with Mike Darnell.”
Said Darnell, president of Warner Bros. Unscripted TV, “I’ve known Paris since the The Simple Life brought us together almost 20 years ago. She has always been an incredible talent and entrepreneur. I couldn’t be more excited to be working with her again and can’t wait for the world to watch the next chapter of her life.”
Hilton, the great-granddaughter of Hilton Hotels founder Conrad Hilton, rose to fame in the early 2000s as a socialite, reality star and constantly pursued tabloid subject. She founded Paris Hilton Entertainment in 2006, which launched 45 retail stores and a host of product and fragrance lines.
Hilton is the subject (and producer) of This Is Paris, a documentary about her life that debuted at the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival and streams on YouTube. She was a producer of of The Simple Life beginning with its third season and executive produced two other reality series she fronted, Paris Hilton’s My New BFF on MTV and The World According to Paris on Oxygen. She is repped by UTA and Jill Fritzo Public Relations.
