*E! Entertainment Television confirmed today that it has greenlighted the  new reality show starring Khloe Kardashian and her husband Lamar Odom.

The network has ordered eight episodes of the tentatively titled “Khloe & Lamar” from Ryan Seacrest Prods. and Bunim-Murray Prods. It’s scheduled to start shooting early this year.

“Khloe & Lamar” marks the third spinoff of E!’s successful “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” franchise, following “Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami” and “Kourtney & Kim Take New York,” which debuts Jan. 23.

“Khloe and Lamar are such a dynamic couple that we just knew we had to give them their own series,” said Lisa Berger, E! executive vp entertainment programming at E!, which made the announcement at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Pasadena.
