Focusing on the former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's daughter's life as a single mother with son Tripp, the series will follow the young Palin's new life in her native Alaska after brushes with fame on Dancing With the Stars.

“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," said Rob Sharenow. "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."

With plans to air the series, second time is the charm for Palin. She previously filmed a LA-based reality show, alongside DWTS cast member Kyle Massey, for A&E's BIO channel. The network silently scrapped the show in 2011.

Though immediate news of the series doesn't reveal how much of the Palin clan will appear in the docuseries, a release said it will focus on the close relationship she holds with her parents and siblings.

Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp is being produced by Associated Television International, with David McKenzie, Jim Romanovich and David Martin and Lifetime’s Sharenow, Gena McCarthy and Noah Pollack on as executive producers. Robyn Schnieders will co-executive produce.
