LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - NBC is expected to turn former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham’s upcoming reality series into a primetime special, sources said.

If a success, the special could lead to more specials or a series.

The network announced the six-episode series, centering on Beckham’s move to Los Angeles with her family, in February.

Sources said NBC cameras were following Beckham, aka Posh Spice, as recently as Sunday. But there has been speculation in the British media about problems on the show that arose once her husband, David Beckham, was recalled to play with the English national team late last month. The Beckhams had been in the process of relocating to Los Angeles, where David is set to play with Major League Soccer’s Los Angeles Galaxy after his contract with Real Madrid expires June 30.

NBC declined comment Monday.
