Jenner eventually spearheaded the launch of her family’s first reality series, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” which premiered on October 14, 2007.
In 2007, Jenner met with producer Ryan Seacrest and pitched “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” Forbes reported, eventually selling a reality show that chronicled her family’s chaotic life. The first season of the show premiered later that year. However, the amount of that original contract is not publicly known, Insider previously reported.
In 2012, the family closed a three-year deal with E!, Deadline reported. That deal also extended E!’s first look commission for other unscripted ideas and concepts involving the family.
In 2015, Variety reported that the family renewed their contract with E!, although a representative for the network refused to confirm the amount. According to The Hollywood Reporter, that deal was worth approximately $80 million.
In 2017, the Kardashian-Jenner family and E! extended the family’s contract again, with an anonymous source telling Variety that the contract had been renewed through 2020 and totaled “below $100 million.” E! refused to comment on the specifics of the contract extension, including the price.
