Lifetime has given a 10-episode order to a reality skein revolving around Bristol Palin, daughter for former GOP vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
“Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp” will focus on her readjustment to life in Alaska as a single mother.
Half-hour show from Associated Television Intl. will bow later this year. Lifetime’s order comes as the Palin family is set to return to the showbiz spotlight with the March 10 bow of HBO’s much anticipated telepic “Game Change,” a behind-the-scenes chronicle of the 2008 presidential race toplining Julianne Moore as Sarah Palin.
Bristol Palin has been tabloid fodder since it was revealed during the 2008 campaign that she was pregnant at age 17. Since then, she’s flirted with a showbiz career. In 2010 she was a contestant on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars.”
“Bristol Palin” will be exec produced by ATI’s David McKenzie, Jim Romanovich and David Martin along with Lifetime’s Robert Sharenow, Gena McCarthy and Noah Pollack. Robyn Schnieders will co-executive produce.
