'Keeping Up With The Kattarshians' is Iceland's new reality TV show about cats
Now this is a reality TV show I can get behind.
"Keeping Up With The Kattarshians" is a streaming TV series from Iceland that features kittens in the place of Kim, Khloe, Kylie and the gang.
The show's premise is simple: four kittens, all from a local animal rescue shelter, are made to live together in an oversized dollhouse rigged with hidden cameras. The kittens: Guðni, Ronja, Briet, and Stubbur have captivated an Icelandic—and global—audience.
Besides the adorably cute viewing content, the show also has been credited with raising the profile of animal adoption in Iceland. Created in partnership with the Icelandic Cat Protection Society, all four kittens have been adopted just over a week in, and new feline stars are preparing to enter the house!
Producer Inga Lind Karlsdóttir says that many mocked the idea of a TV program starring kittens, but "all the people who were laughing then aren't laughing now.”
Inga says that the show has already attracted the highest-ever traffic to Icelandic broadcaster Nutiminn's website.
“It was a cute idea from a colleague of mine, Þórhallur Gunnarsson. One day he said to me he really wanted to do a show involving cats living in a little house. Everyone else started laughing, but I said, "Let's do this." I have my own TV production company, so we decided to work on it together,” Inga Lind Karlsdóttir shared with Broadly.
