WE tv to premiere Kendra Wilkinson's “Kendra on Top” and Cyndi Lauper's “Cyndi” this summer
Kendra Wilkinson is moving from E! to WE.
Wilkinson, who rose to prominence with the E! reality offerings "The Girls Next Door" and "Kendra," has landed a new reality series, "Kendra on Top," along with "Time After Time" singer Cyndi Lauper, who has also scored a series with the network.
"Kendra on Top," which comes to WE via Prometheus Entertainment, will chronicle Wilkinson's continuing transition from sex symbol to wife and mother, as well as her husband Hank Baskett III's efforts to adjust to life outside the NFL following his departure from the Minnesota Vikings.
"Viewers will see a side of Kendra they’ve never seen before as she works to reinvent herself and does so through the all-important filter of being a wife and mom—her top priorities," WE said of the series in a release.
The 14-episode series, which includes a one-hour premiere and finale in addition to 12 half-hour episodes, begins production this month for a summer debut.
"Celebrity Apprentice" alum Lauper's series, which bears the working title "Cyndi," will present a similar juggling act.
"'Cyndi' takes viewers on an all-access journey into the personal and professional life of one of pop culture’s most beloved and influential icons as she juggles her roles as rock star, mother, wife, Broadway composer, and philanthropist," WE said of the upcoming project. "With her hectic touring schedule, awards appearances, and recording sessions, Cyndi’s family life with her husband of 20 years, actor David Thornton ('My Sister’s Keeper,' 'The Notebook'), and the couple’s 13-year-old son, Declyn, is anything but 'normal.'"
The 12-episode show, which is being produced by Mark Burnett's One Three Inc., begins production in New York in April, also for a summer debut. Lauper is serving as executive producer with Burnett.
