UPI News Service, 04/10/2017
Kylie Jenner has landed her own Keeping Up with the Kardashians spinoff.
The 19-year-old reality star confirmed Monday that she will star in and executive produce the new E! series The Life of Kylie.
"Can't wait to share this with you guys.. my docu-series #LifeOfKylie #Summer2017," she tweeted to her 20.2 million Twitter followers.
The new show will show a "personal, more intimate side" of Jenner as she juggles her personal life, celebrity persona and multi-million dollar cosmetics company, according to E! News.
"These couple years have been such an incredible journey with the support of my fans," Jenner said in a statement. "This show will allow me to give them a peek inside all of the exciting things I am working on as well as some personal time with friends."
Jenner and her family, including sisters Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, came to fame on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which premiered on E! in 2007. The show premiered a 13th season in March.
"Kylie's beauty, business savvy and fashion icon status have made her one of the most famous and successful young women on the planet," E! executive vice president of programming and development Jeff Olde said. "Kylie has achieved so much at such a young age and we know the E! audience will be thrilled now that she is ready to share an inside look at her everyday life."
The Life of Kylie will premiere in the summer. The show will feature Jenner's friend Jordyn Woods, who helped the star surprise students Saturday by attending Rio Americano High School's prom in Sacramento, Calif.
