New reality series to chronicle Bristol Palin's life

Washington, Thu, 01 Mar 2012 ANI

Washington, Mar 1 (ANI): Bristol Palin, daughter of 2008 vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, will soon be appearing in a reality television series that would offer an insight into her life in Alaska as a young, single mother.


US cable network, Lifetime, announced on Wednesday that the network has picked up a new documentary series focusing on the life of the 21-year-old mother as she raises her 3-year-old son, Tripp.


The show, "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp," has been picked up for 10 half-hour episodes. The network revealed that the show would also focus on her relationship with her parents, Sarah and Todd Palin, and her siblings.


"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," ABC News quoted Rob Sharenow, executive vice president of programming for Lifetime Networks, as saying.


"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."


Palin first stepped into the limelight in 2008, when her mother, the former Alaska governor, became Republican Sen. John McCain's vice presidential running mate.


At the age of 18, Palin gave birth to her son, garnering national attention, as she was not married to the father, then-18-year-old Levi Johnston.


The two have been engaged and broken the engagement twice in the last four years.


After the birth of her son, Palin started working with the Candie's Foundation as an advocate for the prevention of teen pregnancy, talking to teens about the significance of abstinence.


In 2010, Palin participated in "Dancing With the Stars", where she was placed third in the competition's 11th season.


The present Lifetime series is already in production, but no clips of the show have been released. Network representatives divulged that they plan to begin airing the series sometime this year.


As far as Johnston's role in the series is concerned, his manager, Tank Jones, told that he was offered a role by the producers, but they have yet to make a decision.


"I don't like surprises," Jones said.


"I don't want him to walk into a bad situation-not that we necessarily think it will be. We're just trying to be careful so we're looking at everything before he decides to participate in the show," Jones added. (ANI)
