Kim Kardashian Reunites With Emma Roberts for Netflix's New Series 'Calabasas' Following Bidding War

In an exciting move that blends reality stardom with fictional drama, the 'American Horror Story' co-stars are set to executive produce a Netflix development that promises to dive deep into the allure and complexity of fame.

AceShowbiz - Kim Kardashian's journey into film and TV takes another significant stride as Netflix secures the development of "Calabasas," a series set to captivate viewers with its compelling narrative and star-studded production team. Alongside Kardashian, the project sees "American Horror Story" co-star Emma Roberts, "Pretty Little Liars" creator I. Marlene King, and Alexandra Milchan ("Tar") joining forces to bring this enthralling story to life.

"Calabasas" finds its roots in the book "If You Lived Here You'd Be Famous by Now" by Via Bleidner, which depicts the tumultuous life of a 16-year-old Midwestern girl thrust into the bewildering social scene of Calabasas High.

This narrative explores the relentless pursuit of fame and the intricate dynamics of a society obsessed with appearances, reminiscent of iconic shows like "The O.C." and "Beverly Hills, 90210". King is set to pen the adaptation and helm the series, promising a deep dive into the glitzy, yet often deceptive, world of Calabasas.

The series "Calabasas" not only highlights the seamless blend of reality and fiction but also promises to deliver a captivating narrative that explores the complexities of fame and identity in modern society.

The genesis of this project followed a competitive bidding war, with Netflix emerging victorious against two other significant offers. Kardashian's global recognition, coupled with her personal connection to Calabasas, significantly amplified the project's appeal, making it one of the most anticipated developments in recent times.

This marks Kardashian's fourth major project announcement since the strike's conclusion, demonstrating her growing influence in the entertainment industry beyond her reality TV roots.

Emma Roberts is not only reuniting with Kardashian for this venture but is also expanding her producing credentials through Belletrist. This follows the success of Hulu's "Tell Me Lies," which has been renewed for a second season. Meanwhile, King continues to build on her legacy in the teen drama genre, with Milchan bringing her experience from Apple TV+'s "Blackbird" and "The Crowded Room."

As Kardashian and Roberts venture deeper into producing, their collaboration with seasoned industry professionals like King and Milchan sets the stage for a series that could very well redefine the teen drama genre for the streaming age.
