Congratulations to Whitney Port, the only marginally sane cast member of The Hills, whose spinoff has just been picked up by MTV.
“They will start shooting immediately,” says a show source, who confirms the pickup just happened within the last two weeksâ€”though the network has yet to respond to a call for comment.
The series, set to begin airing in early 2009, will feature Port’s life in New York City, where she is now working for Diane von Furstenberg.
Now this is a show I might actually watch. It might even give us a — gasp! — real sense of what it’s like to work in the New York fashion industry. Hopefully heading up her own series doesn’t turn Whitney into another dramalicious Hollywood starlet. I like that she seems down-to-earth and normal.
Will you guys be tuning in to this show?
