Folks are no longer Keeping Up with the Kardashians, so the family is moving to the next possible cash cow: cartoons!

TMZ first broke the story; the family recently had a meeting with studio executive Harvey Weinstein about creating a cartoon show about their famous family. Per the news outlet, Kim pitched the primetime show idea to Weinstein earlier this week.

Apparently, the show would include cartoons of the entire clan, all the way down to the youngest Jenner sisters. But, Caitlyn has been placed on the outs and would not appear.

We, however, are curious if the concept is just a carbon copy of their E! reality show, but just with bigger heads and weird animated faces? We understand the family wants to be in the limelight, but after 13 seasons of a successful reality show, maybe they should call it quits.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
