Kendall Jenner to develop series about 'twin brother' Kirby Jenner

Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner is to executive produce a new series about her "twin brother" Kirby Jenner.

The model will develop a show centring on a parody Instagram account in which the fictitious social media personality named Kirby is digitally inserted into her images.

Kendall has signed up her mum, Kris Jenner, to co-produce the series, which will air on new streaming platform Quibi.

"I'm thrilled that Quibi viewers will get an inside look at the life of my twin brother and he'll finally have the opportunity to shine in this series," the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star said in a tongue-in-cheek statement.

The short-term small screen venture, titled Kirby Jenner, will be developed by The Babysitter director McG, Howie Mandel, and Ryan Seacrest.

Meanwhile, Kirby has also taken to Instagram to share his excitement over the news.

"Umm I guess I have my own @quibi show now?? We're gonna call it 'Kirby Jenner' cause it's easy for me to remember and mom said, 'It's fine.' #KirbyOnQuibi #ComingSoon," he wrote.

Kendall, 24, has long followed Kirby's Instagram account, which currently boasts 1.2 million fans. Previously, the performance artist has received Webby and Shorty Awards nominations in the social humour, best photography, and parody accounts categories.

It is not known when the show will begin airing, but Quibi is set to officially launch on 6 April 2020.

Alexander Wang, Cara Delevingne, Zac Efron, and Joe Jonas are also working on projects for the short-form mobile video platform.
