Los Angeles, July 23, 2009 Newly single and ready to conquer the world, sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian leave LA behind and take a chance on a new city with a notoriously hot social scene when they head to sexy South Beach to launch a second DASH boutique. In addition to her duties at the store, Khloe asserts her independence more than ever, embarking on a new career in radio when her late night talk show "Khloe After Dark" takes over the airwaves on Miami's Y100. As hard as it is to leave the tight-knit Kardashian clan, these free-spirited sisters head to Miami for an entirely new adventure. While the ladies enjoy the hot days, balmy nights and private yachts, they are all business when it comes to making the second Dash boutique as successful as the first. Produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions and Bunim-Murray Productions, the team behind E!'s hit series "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," "Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami" premieres with a special extended episode on August 16 at 10 pm ET/PT only on E!
"Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami" is a look inside the lives of two highly driven sisters as they live and work together, forge new relationships and explore "The Magic City." In the premiere episode, Kim makes her way to Florida to help her sisters/business partners open the second location of their ultra chic clothing store DASH in Miami. However, when Kim and Khloe�s fiery dispositions clash, their argument threatens to destroy the glamorous red carpet opening that is set to kick off their new location. In order to save the business, the fabulous launch party and everyone's sanity, business-minded Kourtney must find a way to bring her sisters together again and get the store opening back on track.
Khloe�s outspoken and over-the-top personality helps in her pursuit of a whole new career when she takes up hosting her own provocative talk radio show, "Khloe After Dark," on Y100 in Miami. Co-hosted by Terrence J. ("106th and Park") and produced by radio personality Michael Yo, the show features a range of topics from entertainment to fashion with celebrity interviews from Kelly Osbourne, Jesse James, Kendra Wilkinson and many more. Although known for her strength and confidence, in the premiere episode Khloe is surprisingly nervous for her first show but with support from her new colleagues, she knocks her debut show out of the park.
Throughout the eight episodes, Kourtney and Khloe work hard but always make time to enjoy the insane Miami nightlife and find themselves in some titillating situations. At Dash, the duo experiences all the problems that running a high-end boutique in a brand new city will bring. Managing employees is never easy which Kourtney soon discovers when she contemplates firing her personal friend Erika and the repercussions cause serious tensions within the Dash workforce. At her gig at the radio station, Khloe finds that it's impossible to always get along with her guests when she gets into a fight with a Miami local whose position against gay rights, causes an all out "on-air" brawl. Khloe also gets involved in a potentially dangerous situation when she finds an illegal substance in a Dash dressing room and takes it to the radio station which puts her job in jeopardy. Outside of work the girls decide to explore their surroundings and head out to the famous Florida Everglades, only to get lost and find themselves stranded in 'gator-infested waters. Kourtney has her own agenda as she branches out to try a sexy new relationship, while Khloe tries to silence her critics who refer to her as a "fabulous drag queen" and hosts her very first drag show. With Miami as the backdrop, the Kardashians don't miss a second of working and playing hard in one of the most beautiful cities on the planet.
"Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami" is produced by RSP and BMP. Ryan Seacrest serves as Executive Producer for Ryan Seacrest Productions and Jon Murray, Jeff Jenkins and Farnaz Farjam serve as Executive Producers for Bunim-Murray.
