This evening, Disney+ hosted an exclusive preview for “The Kardashians” ahead of its launch in the UK on 14th April. Ahead of the screening of the first episode, attendees were surprised by a virtual appearance from Executive Producer Ben Winston who discussed the highly anticipated new series. The event, hosted by singer and Hits Radio’s Fleur East, was held at the historical and recently renovated Old Sessions House in Farringdon, London.
Guests included Chef Lorraine Pascale, ex-Made In Chelsea star Kimberley Garner, beauty bloggers Freddy Cousin-Brown and Gary Thompson (aka The Plastic Boy), Diversity’s Starr Kiely, Tik Tok star Hannah Farrell and Kardashian mega fan Reuben de Maid.
During the virtual appearance, Fleur East asked Ben Winston about what it was like working with the Kardashians, “I found them really impressive. They’re a tight-knit family where family comes first”.
Discussing how the series came about, Ben recalled: “I was on holiday with my wife, and James Corden wouldn’t stop calling me to say, I know you’re on holiday, but Kim Kardashian is calling me and wants to talk about making a new series…”.
Winston also laid out his initial concerns about working on a series in real time: “What if nothing happened during filming?”. Ben’s concerns were quickly alleviated: “It became quickly apparent that with the Kardashians, something is always happening – there’s always something fun and exciting going on”.
The family you know and love is here with a brand new series, giving an all access pass into their lives. Kris, Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, Kendall and Kylie bring the cameras back to give truth to their stories. From the intense pressures of running billion-dollar businesses to the hilarious joys of playtime and school drop-offs, this series brings viewers into the fold with a rivetingly honest story of love & life in the spotlight.
Fulwell 73 partner Ben Winston executive produces alongside Emma Conway and Elizabeth Jones with Danielle King serving as showrunner and executive producer.
