Twenty years after breaking through with hit songs like 'Hold On,' the girl group will chronicle its attempted comeback with a TV Guide Network reality show.

Wilson Phillips is staging a comeback on stage -- and on screen.

The Grammy-nominated girl group famous for hit "Hold On," featuring sisters Carnie Wilson and Wendy Wilson and best friend Chynna Phillips, will let cameras roll for a TV Guide Network reality show titled The Wilson Phillips Project.

The project would chronicle their attempt to recapture the spotlight twenty years later -- a goal that has entailed a Christmas album, tour and Bridesmaids cameo as well as an ABC's Dancing with the Stars turn (Phillips) and a judging role on ABC's Karaoke Battle USA (Carnie Wilson).

“Between touring, recording a new CD and raising nine children, the show promises love, laughter and head bumping!” said Carnie Wilson.

Added Allen Shapiro, Chairman of TV Guide Network, “Our original programming is bringing fans closer to their favorite celebrities, and our new show with Wilson Phillips underscores this commitment.”

The project will be produced by RelativityREAL with Jay Blumenfield and Tony Marsh (Gigolos, Life on a Wire, The Chelsea Handler Show) serving as executive producers. DSW Entertainment's David Simone and Winston Simone will also serve as executive producers. The pilot, which will also offer viewers a peek at their child-filled lives outside of singing, will premiere later this year.
