TLC asks for more ‘LA Ink’

Kat Von D reality series gets eight more episodes

TLC has inked a deal for eight more episodes of the Kat Von D reality series “LA Ink.”

The additional episodes, which will actually serve as the second half of “L.A. Ink’s” fourth season, are set to run in spring 2011. The finale for the first half of this “LA Ink” season airs Wednesday night at 10 p.m.

TLC had previously ordered 13 episodes of season four, which premiered on Aug. 11. This brings the season four total to 21 eps.

This season has followed Kat Von D as the tattoo artist dealt with the exit of Corey Miller, the last founding member of her High Voltage shop. The artist is also seen writing her second book, launching her beauty line and expanding her shop.

But “LA Ink” has also chronicled Kat Von D’s tumtultuous personal life — including her brief relationship with Sandra Bullock’s ex, Jesse James. Insiders confirmed that James initially played a much larger role in season four of “L.A. Ink,” but that his screen time has been dramatically pared back (at the request of Kat Von D).

“LA Ink” has also undergone a change behind the scenes. Gerry McKean (“BBQ Pitmasters”) has replaced Gil Lopez as exec producer. Original Media is behind “LA Ink.”
