E! Entertainment Television presents a new half-hour reality show Kendra, which follows the antics of Girls of the Playboy Mansion fan-favourite Kendra Wilkinson.
The blond bombshell finds herself at a crossroads in her life as she leaves behind the luxuries and amenities of the legendary Playboy Mansion and ventures out to live on her own for the very first time.
Newly engaged to Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett, Kendra struggles to find a balance between wedding planning, her newfound domestic duties and the fun, uninhibited lifestyle she has always lived.
Kendra focuses on the youngest of the "Girls Next Door" who has been living the pampered life of one of Hef's three girlfriends for years.
Within the walls of the Playboy Mansion, she had a staff that waited on her every need, 24-7 room service and a well-organised social secretary that managed her fabulously full Hollywood schedule.
However, out in the real world, this vivacious 23-year-old will find herself faced with all kinds of unfamiliar tasks including laundry, cooking, grocery shopping as well as paying her own bills.
With these new financial responsibilities, Kendra's career becomes a big focus in her life as she has to make time for her modeling jobs, club appearances and celebrity hosting gigs in between having fun.
In the series, fans will see Kendra and Hank will take a road trip together to move him from New Mexico to California, giving this soon-to-be-wed couple an adventurous practice run at marriage.
The two enjoyed an exciting, romantic long-distance relationship, but now they will be living in the same city for the first time and will be forced to find a way to bring their two worlds together.
As one of the "Girls Next Door," Kendra is well-known for her sexy, uninhibited and outrageous lifestyle, but she will need to find a balance between her crazy personality and the more conservative, traditional mindset of her fiance.
From the complexities of planning her June wedding to simply figuring out how to put dinner on the table, Kendra is in for the ride of her life. Luckily she is surrounded by friends and family to help her out along the way.
Good friends Amber Campisi and Britney Binger provide solid support and Campisi even agrees to move in with Kendra to help her with the transition.
However, this Playmate proves she isn't the best role model for her betrothed roommate who is struggling with living a more conservative lifestyle.
Meanwhile, Kendra's mom, grandmother and brother play an active role in her life, understandably anxious about her ability to live on her own. Although Kendra soon finds living on her own challenging, Hef, Holly and Bridget aren't far away and remain an important part of her world.
As Kendra delves into a world of independence, Hef finds his own life going through a huge transition.
Kendra is executive produced by Kevin Burns and produced by Prometheus Entertainment, Fox Television Studios and Alta Loma Entertainment.
