E! Orders New Kardashian Series; Renews ‘Total Divas’ & More

E! has ordered three new unscripted series, including another show under the Kardashian empire, “Dash Dolls.”

The cabler also announced Tuesday the renewals of “Total Divas,” “#RichKids of Beverly Hills” and “Christina Milian Turned Up.”

“Dash Dolls,” exec produced by Kris Jenner and Kim, Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian, follows the employees of the famous family’s upscale Dash boutiques. The show will let viewers into the world of the Kardashian sisters’ “young, fun and hot employees, as they navigate the hectic life of a twentysomething in Hollywood, while representing the Kardashian brand.” The series will feature Khloé’s best friend Malika Haqq and her twin sister Khadijah Haqq. Along with Jenner and the Kardashian trio, exec producers are Jonathan Murray, Gil Goldschein, Jeff Jenkins, Farnaz Farjam and Ryan Seacrest. The project, hailing from Bunim/Murray Productions and Ryan Seacrest Productions, is set to premiere this fall with eight episodes.

The “Dash Dolls” order comes after E! inked an extension deal with the Kardashian/Jenners, reportedly worth close to $20 million, for three more years of programming, including new seasons of flagship series “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”

E! has also picked up new series “Stewarts & Hamiltons” and “WAGS.”

“We are excited to bring viewers more of the buzzy pop culture programming that E! is known for,” said Jeff Olde, E! exec VP of programming and development. “With the return of some of our fan-favorites and expansion into new programming, viewers will be able to dive into a behind-the-scenes peek at the VIP celebrity lifestyle led by these larger-than-life personalities.”

“Stewarts & Hamiltons,” slated to debut this summer, has also been given an eight-episode order. The hourlong series revolves around “a family tree made of true Hollywood royalty” — Kimberly Stewart, daughter of musician Rod Stewart and author and philanthropist Alana Stewart; actor George Hamilton, who is the ex-husband and best friend of Alana; and Hamilton’s reformed bad boy son Ashley Hamilton and his 15-year-old half-brother George Hamilton Jr. Kimberly’s brother Sean Stewart, who starred on A&E’s 2007 series “Sons of Hollywood,” and her half-sister Ruby Stewart will also appear on the series. “Stewarts & Hamiltons” is produced by Bunim/Murray Productions with exec producers Jonathan Murray, Gil Goldschein, Jeff Jenkins, Farnaz Farjam and Chris Ray.

WAGS,” aka “Women and Girlfriends of Sports,” goes inside the world of today’s hottest professional athletes from the perspective of the women behind them, an exclusive club of spouses and girlfriends. “WAGS,” set to bow this summer, has been handed eight one-hour episodes, and is produced by Machete Productions with Amber Mazzola and Lori Gordon serving as exec producers.

“#RichKids of Beverly Hills” returns for season three on May 24. Morgan Stewart, Dorothy Wang, Roxy Sowlaty, Brendan Fitzpatrick, Jonny Drubel, and EJ Johnson return, along with new cast member Taylor-Ann Hasselhoff, daughter of David Hasselhoff.

WWE  hit “Total Divas” returns this summer with Season 5, and freshman series “Christina Milian Turned Up” will be back this fall with a second season.
