Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie will reunite on E! Entertainment Television in the spring of 2006.
The network said Monday that it has acquired the rights to The Simple Life, including 10 all-new episodes to debut next spring under the banner The Simple Life: Till Death Do Us Part.
The Simple Life debuted on Fox Dec. 2, 2003.
“We are thrilled to welcome Paris, Nicole and The Simple Life to E!,” E! Networks CEO Ted Harbert said in a prepared statement. “The addition of this huge comedy hit to our schedule will continue to distinguish E! as the leader in entertainment, celebrity and pop-culture television.”
Twentieth Century Fox Television presidents Dana Walden and Gary Newman added, “E! was among the first media outlets to recognize the enormous star quality of these two young women, and we think they will be a fantastic partner in bringing the next installment of this valuable franchise to fruition.”
