$40 Million, 3-Year Deal for The Kardashians

$40 Million, 3-Year Deal for The Kardashians

By Garrett Godwin

Some of the world may have had enough of those wild and wacky Kardashians, but E! Entertainment Television hasn`t, as the family signed a three-year deal with them for an estimated $40 million dollars: the largest ever in the history of reality television, according to TMZ.

The deal includes Keeping Up with the Kardashians remaining on the air for three more seasons, along with the development and overseeing of unscripted projects in the near future. Sadly, the deal doesn`t include sophomore spin-offs Khloe & Lamar and Kourtney & Kim Take New York.

Since its debut in 2007, Keeping up with the Kardashians has grown into a profitable franchise for E!, which also led to several opportunities for the family: Kim and Rob competing on ABC`s Dancing with the Stars, Khloe on NBC`s Celebrity Apprentice, Kourtney guest-starring on the now-defunct ABC daytime soap One Life to Live (OLTL), and Kim set to co-star in Tyler Perry`s upcoming The Marriage Counselor.

The new season of Keeping up with the Kardashians premieres Sunday, May 20 on E!
