Love them or hate them, the Kardashians are ridiculously famous. From store openings and sock lines to modeling gigs and talk shows, we can hardly keep up with the klan's ever-growing list of money-making ventures. Although we're pretty sure that there isn't another family out there that can match Team K's unexplainable appeal, The CW and TMZ are going to give a try in the form of a new reality series.
WWD reports that the network and Harvey Levin's celebrity-crazed website "will give one family in the U.S. 12 weeks to become famous in Los Angeles, tasking them "with a series of challenges 'to create a public profile fit for a Kardashian.'" Intense. Although both parties have declined to comment, Digital Spy reveals that Famous in 12 will debut on CW midseason.
Hey, family that got selected for the show: read Kim K's advice to reality stars here before making your next move.
