The show, "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp," was picked up for 10 half-hour episodes and will offer an insight into the life of the 21-year-old mother as she raises her 3-year-old son, Tripp. The network said the show will also focus on her relationship with her parents, Sarah and Todd Palin, and her siblings.Lifetime is part of the A&E family of television networks. This is the second proposed series to focus on the eldest Palin daughter. The BIO channel had picked up a reality show which would have also featured Bristol's friend and fellow "DWTS" contestant Kyle Massey, but the network dropped it in November .
"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 of programming for Lifetime Networks, in a news release Wednesday. "This show will reveal the real Bristol Palin and her journey as a daughter, mother and a young woman making her way in the world."
