Bristol Palin docuseries goes to Lifetime
Lifetime has ordered 10 episodes of Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp, a half-hour docuseries that will “provide an exclusive, rare glimpse into Bristol Palin’s real life as a young, single mother forging her own way in the world while living under the constant spotlight as a member of one of America’s most high-profile families.”
“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, executive vice president, Programming of Lifetime Networks, in a statement. “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.”
Palin gave birth to Tripp in Dec. 2008, not long after her mother’s national political campaign in 2008. Since then, she’s appeared on Dancing With the Stars and published a best-selling book, Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far. Life’s a Tripp is scheduled to air sometime this year.
