Bristol Palin joins Lifetime for new docuseries about her life
The daughter of former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin will be the focus of "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp," a Lifetime docuseries that the network says will offer "an exclusive, rare glimpse into Bristol Palin's real life as a young single mother forging her own way into the world while living under the constant spotlight as a member of one of America's most high-profile families."
A Lifetime release said that the show will feature "never-before-granted access to Bristol's real-life experiences growing into womanhood," and will show her adjusting to life in Alaska, as she raises her toddler Tripp and deals with her family. "Steadfastly moving forward both personally and professionally, Bristol will be confronted by the many difficult life decisions people must make regarding parenthood, family, relationships and career."
Ten half-hour episodes have been ordered. No air date has yet been announced.
The Lifetime series will be the second reality show involving Palin. A previous Bio Channel series, in which she moved to Los Angeles with her son to live with fellow "Dancing With the Stars" contestant Kyle Massey, never aired. The series was to have shown Palin working at a small charity.
