He appeared in numerous reality TV series afterwards, but it was not until Bruce starred in E! "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" (2007) that he experienced big break in the business. The reality featured him and wife Kris Jenner and their children as the main focus and chronicled the personal and professional day to day lives of the family. The show's success ignited spin-offs, including "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" and "Kourtney and Kim Take Miami".
