BRINGING THEIR FAMILY HOME TO CALIFORNIA AND PUTTING DOWN ROOTS IS JOB #1 FOR KENDRA AND HANK AS THEY LOOK FOR BALANCE BETWEEN WORK AND FAMILY WHEN THE HIT SERIES "KENDRA" RETURNS FOR ITS 4TH SEASON PREMIERE ON E!
"Kendra" Premieres Sunday, September 25 at 11:00 PM Following the Series Premiere of E!'s New One-Hour Docu-Series "Dirty Soap" at 10:00 PM ET/PT
Los Angeles, CA - August 30, 2011 - It's time for Kendra to put down roots at last when E!'s eponymous series returns for its fourth season premiere. The Baskett family -- Kendra, husband Hank and Little Hank-- finally "slide into home" in their new LA digs following years of cross-country moves. Doing so puts Kendra right back where the action is and positions her perfectly for her Hollywood career ambitions. Of course, this will challenge Kendra and Hank to find just the right balance between the personal and the professional.
Following a successful but intense run on "Dancing with the Stars," Kendra is busily writing her second book and the Basketts are considering another baby. But even as Kendra's work life is busier than ever, Hank's football career seems to be on very shaky ground -- which makes long-term planning for the celebrity couple both stressful and uncertain. But rolling with life's punches is what Kendra is known for, and the Basketts are more than used to dealing with unexpected challenges thrown their way. Together, the Basketts will emerge stronger and even more committed to one another as family always remains their top priority. "Kendra" premieres in its new timeslot on Sunday, September 25 at 11:00 pm ET/PT only on E!
The season kicks off with a hilarious encounter with Kendra and Hank's quirky new neighbors, who play an over-the-top practical joke on the neighborhood's newest residents. Kendra's decision-making skills are put to the ultimate test by all the decorating choices she needs to make for the new home. Meanwhile, a confrontation with Kendra's agent flares up after paparazzi photograph Kendra outside a high-end Beverly Hills restaurant -- in basketball shorts and flip-flops. When the agent demands that Kendra "step up her game" and live up to the expectations of a celebrity lifestyle, Kendra gets defensive. She suggests that the agency focus less on what Kendra's wearing and more on finding Hank some work -- given that he hasn't yet found a spot on an NFL team.
The episode ends with a laugh-filled housewarming BBQ, attended by friends, neighbors, Hank's NFL teammates -- and even Kendra's "Dancing with the Stars" pals, Louis Van Amstel and Karina Smirnoff.
Other highlights this season include:
· Escalating family drama, as Kendra's work obligations -- and some misunderstandings -- strain some of the most important relationships in her life.
· A romantic -- and hilarious -- second honeymoon in Cancun, Mexico.
· A fantastic professional opportunity for Kendra via a screen-test for a new TV show starring comedian Jon Lovitz.
· Hank is challenged as he navigates the uncertainty of his NFL career -- and considers his options for when his playing days come to an end.
· Kendra hires her friend Victoria Fuller as a nanny to care for Little Hank -- and then playing matchmaker to help find the recently separated Victoria her first date in more than 14 years!
Kendra is produced by Prometheus Entertainment, Alta Loma Entertainment and Fox Television Studios. Executive Producer is Kevin Burns, the multiple Emmy� Award-winning producer of numerous non-fiction cable series and specials.
