E! orders Mariah Carey reality series

NBCUniversal-owned cable net E! has ordered Mariah’s World, an eight-part reality series going behind the scenes with pop diva Maria Carey on her latest tour.

Banijay’s Bunim/Murray will produce the series, which will follow Carey as she tours the UK, Europe and Africa. It will also take in the star’s preparations for her upcoming wedding to Australian media mogul James Packer.

E! will put the show out in the US and on its international nets.

“I’m excited to bring my fans into my life for the next journey I’m about to embark on,” said Carey. “I’m already having so much fun with this documentary and I know you will too. There is nothing like capturing these moments.”

Jeff Olde, executive VP, programming and development, E!, said: “The series will present a unique, vulnerable and surprisingly humorous side to Mariah that her fans have never before seen while showcasing her unparalleled celebrity lifestyle filled with true glamour, maximum luxury and ultimate stardom.”

Bunim/Murray is producing in association with Magic Carpet Productions. Bunim/Murray makes E! series including I Am Cait, Keeping up With the Kardashians and Total Divas.
