The E! Entertainment channel has announced Mariah Carey will be the latest celebrity to produce a ‘behind the scenes’ reality series.

The eight one-hour episode docu-series, Mariah's World will grant “VIP access” to the songstress like never before as she begins her “Sweet Sweet Fantasy” tour of the United Kingdom, Europe and Africa, all while planning her upcoming wedding to Australian business mogul, James Packer.

Producers of the docu-series are promising it will feature “an intimate look at the world renowned icon, including her family, friends and inner circle”. At this stage its unclear if James Packer will appear in the series.

The series will air on Foxtel's E! channel later in 2016.

“I’m excited to bring my fans into my life for the next journey I'm about to embark on,” said Mariah Carey. “I’m already having so much fun with this documentary and I know you will too. There is nothing like capturing these moments.”


"Mariah is one of the most captivating pop superstars of our time and one of the rare artists whose first name alone is instantly recognized around the globe.  We’re excited to partner with Bunim/Murray Productions, Mariah and Stella Bulochnikov to offer our viewers exclusive access into her private world," said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Programming & Development, E! “The series will present a unique, vulnerable and surprisingly humorous side to Mariah that her fans have never before seen while showcasing her unparalleled celebrity lifestyle filled with true glamour, maximum luxury and ultimate stardom."

The performer known for her global hits, “All I Want for Christmas is You,” “Honey,” and “We Belong Together,” is a five-time Grammy Award winner, 32-time Billboard Music Award winner, 21-time World Music Award winner and ten time American Music Award winner.  The doting mother of two is currently engaged and planning her wedding to business tycoon James Packer.  Mariah’s “Sweet Sweet Fantasy” European tour currently has 28 scheduled performances throughout Europe, Africa and the United Kingdom which will bookend her critically-acclaimed Las Vegas residency “Mariah #1 to Infinity” at Caesars Palace which has been extended through the fall.  This is her first tour for European audiences in over a decade.  Additionally, she is also launching a new vodka and is collaborating with some of the music industry’s top producers and performers on laying down new tracks. Mariah is truly one of the busiest women in the world but she is enjoying it every step of the way.
