The preparation for Shannen Doherty's impending wedding to celebrity photographer Kurt Iswarienko will play out for everyone to see, now that the 40-year-old former "Charmed" star has landed a reality show on WEtv.
Currently titled "The Shannen Doherty Project," the eight-part unscripted series will show the "complicated and often hilarious" antics of the engaged couple as they try to mesh their lives together, according to a statement from the network.
The hour-long episodes will follow Doherty gearing up for her wedding, some sort of "house tragedy" that has legal implications, and, of course, what's up next for Doherty's acting career.
“This is an opportunity for audiences to get a rare sneak peek into the real Shannen, who has been notorious about guarding her private life," says WE's Senior VP of Original Programming and Development John Miller. "Her situations are familiar and [that's] what will make this series stand apart from other celeb-reality shows."
Judge that for yourself when it airs next year. Production on "The Shannen Doherty Project" is scheduled to begin in August.
