The producers behind "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" are hoping viewers will also want to keep up with Boy George.

Bunim/Murray Productions is teaming with the flamboyant Culture Club frontman for a new docuseries chronicling the singer's move from London to Los Angeles.

The untitled series, which is in development, will focus on Boy George's new life in the States, including dating, house-hunting, Culture Club's North American tour, managing pop group Brando and starting a line of vegan foods.

Bunim/Murray was approached by Boy George's manager, Paul Kemsley, and Cindy Cowan (Very Bad Things) about doing the series. The two will serve as executive producers along with Boy George and BMP's chairman and CEO Gil Goldschein and exec vice president of development and programming Jeff Jenkins.

They hope to begin production on the show this summer when Boy George arrives in L.A. A network is not yet attached.

"Boy George is a musical and cultural icon, and it's about time someone captured his story," said Goldschein. "We are experts in producing celeb-reality docuseries, and we couldn't be more excited with the opportunity to tell this story with the right broadcast partner."

Iconic '80s performers seem to be in demand for unscripted fare. For example, Mr. T, who starred in the action series "The A-Team," recently landed a home improvement series on DIY called "I Pity the Tool."
