The former Dancing with the Stars contender and best-selling author will get a 10-episode run on the network later this year, with the show providing "an exclusive, rare glimpse" into Bristol's life as a single mother "forging her own way in the world" in Alaska with son Tripp, focusing on the close relationship she holds with her high-profile parents Todd and Sarah 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," says Lifetime's Rob Sharenow. "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."

No stranger to the spotlight, Bristol is used to having cameras following her around; she previously filmed a Los Angeles-based reality show alongside DWTS cast member Kyle Massey for A&E's BIO channel, but it was never picked up.
