A new TV show House of Kardashian will be shown on the UK’s Sky Documentaries and streaming service Now in the coming fall. This show will have three parts and will be all about the Kardashian-Jenner family.
Produced by Fremantle’s 72 Films, the docuseries “aims to confound expectations and challenge what society knows of the Kardashians, exploring their rise, reach and the cost that comes with being some of the most famous women on the planet,” Sky said. “No other family defines our time or divides opinion like the Kardashians. To some they are admired as a dynasty of powerful women, inspiring girls across the planet. To others, they are untalented and morally bankrupt reality stars, who are damaging women by selling their life as a superficial fairytale.”
It delves into how they became so well-known, how influential they are, and the negative aspects that accompany their immense fame.
The show includes never-before-seen old videos and accounts from people close to the Kardashian-Jenner group, including Caitlyn Jenner. It also examines how the family interacts, instances of public shock, questionable business agreements, and individual challenges they’ve faced.
Poppy Dixon, who oversees documentaries and factual content at Sky, along with Hayley Reynolds, a commissioning editor representing Zai Bennett, the Managing Director of Content for Sky in the U.K. and Ireland, are the ones who decided to make the series.
House of Kardashian is directed by Katie Hindley and led by executive producer Clare Cameron. It’s also supported by John Douglas, the creative director of 72 Films, the production company involved.
Fremantle is in charge of sharing the series with audiences around the world, except for the United States.
Jenner said: “I was happy to participate in the interview process to share my side which points to the strength, influence, and prowess my family has in captivating the world’s attention and keeping it over the years. I am incredibly proud of all my children and stepchildren.”
Poppy Dixon added: “Whether you like, loathe or are indifferent to the Kardashians, you cannot deny the family’s grip on popular culture and influence on society. The story behind how these women redefined the word dynasty, all whilst our attitude to celebrity, race and women has changed, is inspiring, thought-provoking and tells us so much about ourselves. 72 Films are experts in taking these cultural juggernauts and exploring them through ambitious and intelligent storytelling, underpinned with strong journalism and lots of juicy revelation.”
Cameron said: “As a filmmaker, you might question what is left to reveal about the Kardashian-Jenners – arguably one of the most famously, overexposed families in Hollywood. Through our interviews with those who have been in the family’s orbit since the beginning, we uncover their personal motivations, and explore how a changing culture allowed their influence on women around the world to thrive.”
