E! Entertainment Television announces a second season pick-up for its popular half-hour reality series “Denise Richards.” Production for the new season will begin early 2009, which is poised to be a year of changes for Denise, including new career opportunities, reconnecting with old friends and a move on the horizon. The series follows the daily life of the actress as she juggles career, motherhood and romance while living in the glare of the Hollywood spotlight. Produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions, “Denise Richards” offers an intimate look inside the world of one of today’s most talked about celebrities.

The series more than doubled the network’s primetime delivery among total viewers, averaging nearly 1.1 million viewers in its premieres, and scored its highest ratings among the coveted Women 18-34 demo, nearly tripling E!’s primetime average.
“When Denise let viewers into her home last season, they got to know the real Denise and judge for themselves,” said Lisa Berger, Original Programming and Series Development, E! Entertainment Television. “We all know that Denise is full of surprises and, from what we are already hearing, there is much more to come. Ryan Seacrest Productions is a fantastic partner for us and we look forward to the new season.”
