NEW YORK, March 1 (UPI) -- U.S. cable network Lifetime says it plans to air a series following Bristol Palin's life as a single mom raising a toddler in her native Alaska.
Palin, 21, is the daughter of 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. She is an author and a former contestant on "Dancing with the Stars," and is also is the mother of a 3-year-old son named Tripp.
The New York Post said "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp" will offer a "never-before-granted" look at Palin's life as a young mom.
Lifetime ordered 10 half-hour episodes of the show, which is to premiere this year, the Post said.
"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," Rob Sharenow, Lifetime's executive vice president of programming, said 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."
