Lifetime Networks announced Wednesday that it has ordered 10 half-hour episodes from producers of a new "docuseries" starring Bristol Palin and her son, Tripp.
Bristol's previous cable reality show, set in California and slated for the BIO channel, fizzled. Maybe returning to Alaska for "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp" will work better.
“From the first moment she was thrust into the public eye, Bristol and her son have been the subjects of a huge amount of curiosity and misunderstanding. This show will reveal the real Bristol Palin and her journey as a daughter, a mother and a young woman making her way in the world,” said Rob Sharenow, executive vice president of programming for Lifetime Networks.
The press release encapsulates the show's main story arc, which is set to begin unfolding on air this year:
Steadfastly moving forward both personally and professionally, Bristol will be confronted by the many difficult life decisions people must make regarding , family, relationships and career – giving viewers a unique look at how these true-to-life challenges test her resolve as she single-handedly writes the next chapter in her and Tripp’s young life.
