E! Entertainment Television has greenlighted a new reality show starring Khloe Kardashian and 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.

The series, which has been rumored for months but never previously confirmed by the network, will revolve around not only the couple, who married in 2009, but also Khloe Kardashian's brother, Robert Kardashian Jr., who is staying in their home and embarking on a music career. Cameras also will follow Lamar Odom as the professional basketball player hits the road with his Los Angeles Laker teammates.

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 January 23.
