E! confirmed in a press release today that Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have landed their very own reality show, titled Rob & Chyna.
The network ordered six one-hour episodes that will follow "the whirlwind romance of Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna as they prepare for the birth of their first child."
WAIT THERE’S MORE.
A special will air after the docuseries celebrating the the new arrival (a la Kourtney Kardashian, I guess?).
Ryan Seacrest Productions and Bunim/Murray Productions, the same company behind Keeping Up with The Kardashians, will produce the series, which sees the couple "openly share their new life while setting up their new home and preparing for their first child together."
Translation: This is going to be a train wreck, so much so that any network would be insane not to capture it.
“Very few love stories have created as much pop culture buzz as Rob and Chyna’s, and we are thrilled to see Rob in such a happy place,” sayeth Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Original Programming & Development, E!
“We are excited to share the next chapter in their relationship.”
We are too, considering it’s about six months old.
Kris Jenner will serve as an Executive Producer, while Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna get billing as Co-Executive Producers.
Radar Online reported earlier today that Chyna will finally get some air time on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which makes sense because it will allow her and the sole male Kardashian to organically introduce their own series (which, we’ll assume, is being classified as a "spin-off.")
"She will begin filming in the near future,” a source told the site.
However, Chyna won’t be assigned any storylines that would make her an integral part of the series.
“Kris will carefully control Chyna’s participation,” the source added.
“She can’t just do or say whatever she wants.”
Well, she has her own series now, so apparently she can.
