Khloe Kardashian and husband Lamar Odom's new reality series spinoff has been confirmed by E!.
"Khloe and Lamar are such a dynamic couple that we just knew we had to give them their own series," E! executive Lisa Berger said.
"They are fascinating individuals in their own right, and together the duo are a powerhouse. They are funny, dramatic, opinionated, and we intend to capture all this, along with the unvarnished reality of their lives together and apart, since each is constantly followed by their own celebrity spotlight."
Reports that the couple were getting their own series surfaced last month.
The spinoff will follow The Keeping Up with the Kardashians and former Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami star and her NBA basketball star husband -- who wed in a September 2009 ceremony which was documented on Keeping Up with the Kardashians' fourth-season premiere that aired on E! five weeks later -- in their daily life and chronicle their life together as a married couple.
Khloe and Lamar -- the show's working title -- will show how the 26-year-old Kardashian has taken on the roles of a wife and a stepmother to Destiny and Lamar Jr., Odom's two children from a previous marriage to Liza Morales. In addition, it will not only follow Odom's life in Los Angeles, but it will cover his journey on the road as a member of the Lakers NBA basketball team.
In addition to Kardashian and Odom, the eight-episode series will also feature Kardashian's brother Robert, who will be living under the same roof as the couple, and document his attempt to launch a music industry career now that he is no longer living with his mother Kris Kardashian and step-dad Bruce Jenner.
Like Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the spinoff will be produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions and Bunim-Murray Productions.
The show will be the third spinoff of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians since it debuted on E! in 2007.
The first spinoff, Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, aired in 2009 and followed Kardashian and her sister Kourtney Kardashian as they opened a second location of the family's Dash clothing boutique in Miami, FL.
Kourtney and Kim Take New York, the second spinoff, will premiere on E! on January 23 and follow Kourtney and sister Kim Kardashian as they relocate to New York City to open a third store.
