The new collaboration will bring the pair back to the small screen under a different show title with a new premise.

Production sources confirmed to TMZ that Hilton, 43, and Richie, 42, will lead the cast, but noted the project was still in its early stages and filming had not yet begun. An official announcement was in the works, they said.

The pair allegedly came up with their vision for the show after months of brainstorming and quickly sold the idea to a streaming service.

The series followed the glamorous duo as they toured through rural American towns, staying with everyday families and taking on odd jobs. Their escapades amused audiences but sometimes clashed with locals. Despite some controversy, which also included a personal feud between the pair, the series was a smash in the ratings.

Its legacy continued after the last episode aired in 2007, as The Simple Life was credited with influencing subsequent shows for highlighting society's fascination with wealthy figures.
