Oxygen Greenlights Paris Hilton Reality Series


Media celebrity Paris Hilton will star in a new as yet titled Oxygen docu-reality series, executives from the female-targeted network said Thursday.
The series, produced by A. Smith & Co. Productions (Hell's Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, and Paradise Hotel), will follow the model, singer, actress, and entrepreneur's life outside of the media spotlight, according to the network.
"Paris is magnetic in such a way that viewers are naturally curious about her and think they know her based on what they see in the media," said Amy Introcaso-Davis, Senior Vice President, Original Programming and Development in a statement. "We're looking to truly bring an all-encompassing look at her life, friends, family, and relationships, all that's not represented every day. It's going to be a fascinating journey."
This series marks Hilton's second attempt at cable reality series stardom. The outgoing star appeared in The Simple Life alongside Nicole Richie as socialites working low-paying, manual jobs. The series aired on E! Entertainment in 2006 nd 2007 after initially airing on Fox broadcasting network.
