E! gives shows to celeburglar suspect, Holly Madison
The cable channel has greenlit a series starring one of the teenagers charged in a string of burglaries of celebrities' homes, her Playboy model sister and their family. Currently titled "Pretty Wild," the show will follow 18-year-old Alexis Neiers -- who's pleaded not guilty to burglaries at the homes of Lindsay Lohan, Rachel Bilson and other famous folks -- her 19-year-old sister Tess Taylor, a Playboy Cybergirl and regular on the Hollywood party scene, and 15-year-old Gabrielle Neiers.
Separately, E! has given the go-ahead to "Holly's World," an eight-episode series starring former "Girl Next Door" and Playboy model Holly Madison. It will focus on Madison as she establishes a new life in Las Vegas and takes the lead in a burlesque show.
When Neiers was arrested in October in connection with the burglaries, E! released a statement saying she and her family were "the subject of a pilot for E!. Shooting began several days ago and will continue for the next few weeks. We are concerned by recent events, awaiting further details and will be monitoring the situation closely."
That was then. Now? "These sisters are compelling, unpredictable and drop-dead gorgeous -- perfect prey for all that Hollywood has to offer, the good, the bad and the ugly," E! programming head Lisa Berger says. "Their lives were recently turned upside down and our viewers will be there every step of the way to find out what happens next."
"Pretty Wild" is set for a March debut, and "Holly's World" will premiere in the summer.
