Victoria Beckham's £10m TV Deal

Victoria Beckham’s dream of conquering America came a step closer to reality today after signing a £10 million deal with American television network NBC.

The former Spice Girl will star in her own fly-on-the-wall documentary series which will cover her forthcoming move to Los Angeles, following David Beckham’s, multimillion pound transfer to MLS outfit, Los Angeles Galaxy.

Victoria’s spokeswoman confirmed the news this evening, stating the programme will “look inside her world,” but whilst it will briefly feature her 31-year-old husband, the couple’s three sons, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz will be guarded from the limelight and won’t feature.

The 32-year-old pout princess recently made the trip to LA in the mission of house hunting in time for David to kick-off his American career this summer. She is certain to enlist the help of her new best celeb pals, Jennifer Lopez, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes to ensure stateside success.

She recently described her family’s move from Madrid to the US as “really exciting,” and it became a decision that had to be “thought about carefully.”

"I'm really looking forward to making new friends and enjoying the sunshine in California," Victoria revealed on her website.It appears that the former Spice Girls manager and close friend of the Beckham’s, Simon Fuller, helped seal Victoria’s NBC deal just as he had with David’s $250 million move to LA Galaxy.

Fuller had earlier hinted of an inevitable deal, telling the London publication, London Lite that, “the Americans were falling over themselves to sign Victoria up for a TV show but we had to choose the right deal for her. NBC won out in the end as they have really taken a shine to Vic’s hilarious sense of humour and they want to capitalise on this. She is a funny lady and this new series will show this to the world. Funny is the key word. Just remember that when the show hits our screens.It will humanise her and give her fans an insight into what she’s really like for the first time.”

Should Fuller continue his streak of current successes, we could witness the re-emergence of what originally made Victoria the tabloid queen she is today, the Spice Girls. Having enviously watched the huge success of the re-united Take That, it’s believed Fuller has an agenda planned on re-launching Britain’s most successful girl group.

Initial murmurs of the TV deal were touted after Victoria had attended her good friend Elton John’s lavish Oscars bash in the early hours of Monday morning at the Pacific Design Centre, Hollywood. Precise details of the series remain sketchy and Beckham’s spokeswoman said matters were still to be finalized and therefore no timescale for transmission could be announced.

*As reported on


  1. Sounds great, hopefully I'll be able to watch it! in a ceratin way i think that the fact that her kids won't appear isn't that good for their security 'cos that decision will only make the journalists feel more anxious about taking pics of them especially in the US where celebitie's kids are as famous as their parents.

  2. Victoria is very protective when it comes to the publicity and pictures of her children, which I think is a right attitude to have. Then when they are older and wiser, they can choose for themselves.

    It will be interesting to see how the American press deal with the Beckham family.

  3. I totally agree with you, it'll be very interesting. I knowit's good that she protects her kids especially because of Cruz and his disease.
