Kim Kardashian Bitten by the Producing Bug
Now that her first TV project as a producer is set to air, she wants to create more shows
Now that her boyfriend has won a Super Bowl, Kim Kardashian has a new goal: To produce TV shows – lots of TV shows.
Inspired by her role as executive producer of E!’s The SPINdustry – a half-hour reality TV special debuting Feb. 21 that chronicles the glam goings-on of entertainment publicists Simon Huck and Jonathan Cheban – Kardashian says she’s been bitten by the producing bug.
“I definitely see myself doing a lot more [producing],” Kardashian tells PEOPLE. “It’s something I’m passionate about, and I hope people get an idea of the types of shows I like to do.”
She added, “I actually really like it because I’m able to share my ideas and see them come to life. I think this is just the start of many projects.”
Kardashian, 29, says Ryan Seacrest, the executive producer of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, has been an amazing resource. “He’s always been very helpful to me, and he gives me really good advice,” she says.

As for The SPINdustry, Kardashian says Cheban and Huck, of the bicoastal agency Command PR, ingratiated themselves with viewers after appearing on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
“Everyone would see them on our show and wonder who these guys are,” she says of the duo, who produce celebrity events. “They’re hysterical, and their chemistry is amazing. Jonathan is the ‘over-promiser,’ he overextends himself, and he kind of leaves Simon to figure it out. So the difference between the two is hysterical. There’s definitely a lot of drama along the way. Something always goes wrong!”
High jinks aside, Kardashian promises The SPINdustry will offer an uncensored look at Hollywood. “People want the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and this show has it,” Kardashian says, adding that she makes a brief appearance in the special, as does Melanie Brown. “But you also see the realness of Hollywood. They’re very candid about the world of PR. You’ll get that glitz and glamour but with insight into the lives of celebrities.”
