Bristol Palin is making it a reality show hat trick.
The daughter of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is set to star in a new docu-series for the BIO network, in which she moves in with "Dancing With the Stars," cast mate Kyle Massey and his brother Christopher. According to BIO's press release, the series, set to air in late 2011, "follows Bristol Palin's move from Alaska to Los Angeles with her son, Tripp, to work at a small charity in need while living with her good friends Chris and Kyle Massey."
Palin, of course, has experience with cameras in her home; she was part of mom Sarah's TLC show "Sarah Palin's Alaska." This one, one would assume, will have less shooting of animals.
It was recently revealed that Palin made $262,000 for her work with a teen pregnancy prevention group, The Candie's Foundation. She'll also be releasing a memoir of sorts this summer.
The release from BIO follows:
New York, NY - May 9, 2011 - BIO has ordered ten half-hour episodes of an untitled Bristol Palin/Massey brothers docu-series from Associated Television International, it was announced today by David McKillop, Executive Vice President, Programming, A&E Network and BIO Channel. The series follows Bristol Palin's move from Alaska to Los Angeles with her son, Tripp, to work at a small charity in need while living with her good friends Chris and Kyle Massey. The series is slated to air in late 2011.
She's the most famous single mother in America. And she became a national media darling during her odds-defying, ratings record-breaking run on "Dancing with the Stars." Now as Bristol Palin gears up for her work in this charity, she is allowing cameras exclusive access into her personal life for the first time.
While on "Dancing," Bristol became extremely close with fellow contestant, actor Kyle Massey. Since the show, Bristol, Kyle, and Kyle's brother, actor Christopher Massey, have become best friends; so much so, that since Bristol and Tripp have to move to Los Angeles for her new job, she decides to move in with the Massey brothers who are also about to realize how much their lives are about to change.
"Bristol is the kind of personality BIO is drawn to," said McKillop. "Her personal life has been playing out in the media for several years but this will be the first time she's opening up her real life, with her son and her friends the Massey Brothers."
The untitled project is produced by Associated Television International for BIO. David McKenzie and Jim Romanovich serve as executive producers for Associated Television International. David McKillop, Tom Moody and Andy Berg serve as the executive producers for BIO.
