Bristol Palin is heading back to television.
The BIO Channel announced today that they will air 10 half-hour episodes of a currently untitled Bristol Palin/Massey brothers docu-series. The new program will center around the young Palin and her son Tripp's move to Los Angeles, where they will live with actor Kyle Massey and his brother Christopher.
It seems that Palin, Kyle – who formerly starred on the hit Disney Channel show "That's So Raven" and was Palin's fellow contestant on "Dancing with the Stars" – and Christopher have become besties.
"While on 'Dancing,' Bristol became extremely close with fellow contestant, actor Kyle Massey," according to a press release about the new series.
"Since the show, Bristol, Kyle, and Kyle's brother, actor Christopher Massey, have become best friends; so much so, that since Bristol and Tripp have to move to Los Angeles for her new job, she decides to move in with the Massey brothers who are also about to realize how much their lives are about to change."
David McKillop, executive vice president of programming for the A&E Network and BIO Channel, said viewers will get to see Palin take on her big move from Alaska to a new job in Los Angeles with a small charity in need.
“Bristol is the kind of personality BIO is drawn to,” McKillop said. “Her personal life has been playing out in the media for several years but this will be the first time she’s opening up her real life, with her son and her friends the Massey Brothers."
The new show is slated to air later this year.
