Lebanese TV channel LBC is to launch a fly-on-the-wall reality TV show called The Sisters, which is already being likened to a Middle East version of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

The self-proclaimed "gorgeous ladies" in question Alice, Nadine and Farah AbdelAziz will be living their lives out in front of the cameras, just like their US counterparts Kim, Kourtney and Khloe.

In 2013, the AbdelAziz sisters started a fashion blog named Styleinbeirut, which has since attracted more than 100,000 real followers. Style images and trend tips from the Lebanese capital flood their Instagram account.

"Our aim is to connect fashion around the world and to show the whole world how Lebanese women are smart, stylish and beautiful. Also, we want to show them that Lebanon is not just a country struggling with issues but Beirut is and will always be the Paris of the Middle East. We will soon be hitting TV with a surprising new tv show," read their recent post.

Oldest sister Alice founded and runs the sisters' blog and also works as a recruitment consultant in Beirut, while middle sister Nadine is signed to a model agency in Dubai and represented Lebanon at the Miss Tourism 2012 World final. Youngest sister Farah, also known as Fafi, has a degree in management from Saint Joseph University in Beirut, like her eldest sibling Alice.

The sisters' new TV show is expected to begin airing in late February, via the pan-Arab free-to-air satellite broadcaster LBC.
