E! Entertainment (DStv 124) has ordered and filmed a special Keeping Up with the Kardashians 10-year anniversary special to reflect on the American reality family's decade on television.

A broadcasting date for the 90-minute TV special in South Africa and Africa on E! on MultiChoice's DStv satellite pay-TV platform isn't known yet, but in America it will be shown on E! on 24 September just before the start of the reality show's 14th season on 1 October.

The Kardashians 10-Year Anniversary Special has Ryan Seacrest as the presenter whose Ryan Seacrest Productions has also been producing the reality show together with Bunim/Murray Productions over the past decade.

In the talk show type special filmed before alive studio audience, Ryan Seacrest sits down with Kris, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall, Kylie and Scott Disick to reflect on the past decade and delve into what it's been like for the family to live all their triumphs and hardships in front of the camera.

"Since the show's inception 10 years ago, viewers have watched the family evolve, grow and become a huge part of today's pop culture zeitgeist," says Jeff Olde, E!'s executive vice president for programming and development in a statement.

"In celebrating the family's decade on the air, we are extremely grateful for the fans all over the world who have 'kept up' since the beginning."

In the 14th season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians that doesn't yet have a starting date on E! for South Africa/Africa, viewers will see Kim debate removing herself from the spotlight to focus on her family after she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris.

"From backyard camping and wine tasting in Santa Barbara to jet-setting to Mexico for birthday shenanigans, the family is determined to get back to basics, but not without some challenges along the way," says E!.
