NBC to look at the Posh life of Victoria Beckham in reality show

MUMBAI: Football star David Beckham's better half Victoria Beckham who was formerly known as Posh Spice has signed a deal with US broadcaster NBC for a new reality series from Simon Fuller's 19 Entertainment.

It will give viewers an exclusive inside look at Beckham's glamorous life as she makes the move across the pond from London to Los Angeles. The six, half-hour episodes are slated to premiere this summer.

NBC Entertainment president Kevin Reilly says, "The series will give viewers a glimpse into what makes Victoria so popular and admired as one of the most glamorous women in the world. She makes news wherever she goes and our audience can now become insiders in this fascinating personal view of what being 'Posh' truly represents."

Beckham says, "I am so excited to be making this show for NBC with Simon Fuller. He has so much success around the world with his TV shows and the respect and trust of everybody he works with. This show is really something different, it's pushing the boundaries and I think it's going to surprise a lot of people."

Fuller says, "For the past few years, I've been inundated with requests to make a show based on Victoria's real life. After much thought, we have finally decided to do it. NBC will be our partners. Both Kevin Reilly and Craig Plestis have been extremely supportive in allowing us to do something a little different. This show will cross all genres and hopefully will pleasantly surprise a few people!"

Beckham burst onto the scene as a member of the pop group The Spice Girls. Known around the world as "Posh Spice," the group sold millions of albums worldwide before it disbanded in 2001.
