Reality TV star Kim Kardashian is stepping behind the scenes to produce a new reality show about the Pussycat Dolls.

The socialite has signed a deal with TV mogul Nigel Lythgoe to serve as executive producer on the series, which will feature the launch of the girl band's new line-up.

According to, Kardashian agreed to the project because she admires Lythgoe as "the best in the business."

The Pussycat Dolls originally formed in 1995 as a burlesque dance troupe, before going on to find international success as a pop band with Nicole Scherzinger as frontwoman.

The Don't Cha hit-makers disbanded to pursue solo careers in 2010.
