Titled “Life With La Toya,” show will give viewers an up close and personal look at Jackson’s lifestyle as she juggles the many demands of her famous family, finding time for lifelong friends and dealing with a growing entertainment business empire.

Series, to be produced by World of Wonder with Ja-Tail Television, is set to premiere in 2013. Exec producers are Jackson, Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell, Jeremy Simmons, Jeffré Phillips and Charles Cook.

Bailey and Barbato have worked with the cabler before, serving as exec producers on docu “Becoming Chaz” – the transformation of Chaz Bono from a woman to a man.
