"Pretty Wild" is returning to E! in celebration of "The Bling Ring."

The network will air a marathon of the 2010 reality series that followed Alexis Neiers, Tess Taylor, Gabby Neiers and their mom Andrea Arlington, on Friday, June 21, the same day Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring" hits theaters nationwide.

The two-hour "Pretty Wild" marathon will feature episodes that follow Neiers' legal issues in regards to her alleged involvement with the group of teenagers who burglarized homes of celebrities from October 2008 through August 2009. The group reportedly stole $3 million in cash and belongings from figures such as Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom and Rachel Bilson.

Coppola wrote and directed the film based on Nancy Jo Sales’s 2010 Vanity Fair story, "The Suspects Wore Louboutins," the one that prompted one of the most famous moments in reality TV history. (Neiers claimed she wore "four-inch little brown Bebe shoes" to court, not six-inch Louboutins.)

"The Bling Ring" star Emma Watson, whose character Nicki is based on Neiers, said she watched the E! reality series to try and get into character. "I watched 'Pretty Wild' so many times to try and get her into my brain, though," she said. "It gave me anxiety. How do you watch it?"
