'The Hills' star Audrina Patridge spins off to VH1
Patridge's VH1 show, called "Audrina," will premiere in April. The show, executive produced by Mark Burnett ("Survivor," "Sarah Palin's Alaska"), will follow Patridge as she tries to further her Hollywood career and with her family.
Mom Lynn has already gained some notoriety for a drunken screed following her daughter's elimination from "DWTS" in October; her dad, Mark, and younger siblings Casey, Marky and Samantha will also be featured. The family stuff will intertwine with tales of Audrina trying to advance her " acting, modeling and business career."
So why Audrina, VH1 executive vice president of original programming and production Jeff Olde?
"We love that Audrina's life plays out simultaneously on two levels. On one level, she is working hard to establish herself in the entertainment industry," Olde says. "But at the same time she has this amazingly real, supportive family in Orange County who keeps her grounded. Ultimately, this is the story of a young woman with dreams, goals and ambitions all put through the no-BS filter of her family. We love that."
Patridge will also be a producer of the show, along with Burnett, her manager Dave Fleming and Michael Bloom.
