LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Shahs of Sunset Season 4 is returning. And while it is unclear if Lilly Ghalichi is among the new cast, LALATE can report that Lilly is likely to appear in another reality show if it gets a production deal. The show purportedly still being pitched is called Hempire. So why would Lilly likely to appear in Hempire? The reason is because Lilly is now engaged to the show’s proposed featured character.
Lilly Ghalichi is engaged to Dahr Man. But before Lilly was cast to Shahs of Sunset, Dahr was pitching his own reality show, about him, his business and life at home, entitled Hempire. The show’s pitch was “Two not-so-usual suspects leave mainstream white-collar industries to pursue opportunities in the blooming pot industry.”
The reality show shopped to Original Productions at the time would feature Derek Peterson and Dahr Man and their business. In a news statement, the production company confirmed hearing the pitch and called Man and his partner “two of the smartest California entrepreneurs they had ever met.”
If inked, Hempire would not be a true “spinoff” in the traditional sense of the word for programming purposes. Moreover the show may not land at even at Bravo. But as previously reported on LALATE, Bravo is actually in development on a true Shahs of Sunset spinoff set in New York. Bravo renewed Shahs for a season four this week but would reveal the upcoming cast.
