We're not sure why we need another opportunity to glimpse into the life of young single mom Bristol Palin, but Lifetime is giving it to us anyway.
The network has picked up 10 half-hour episodes of "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp," which will focus on her "real-life experiences of growing into motherhood" as she raises her 3-year-old son, Tripp, a statement from Lifetime says.
Last year, the BIO channel announced a project that was to see Bristol move into an L.A. abode with fellow former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant Kyle Massey and his brother.
That show was to also document Bristol's hunt for a new job, but it's unclear what became of that reality show.
Lifetime's series, meanwhile, will be all about Bristol, as the network explains that "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp" will "reveal how she adjusts to her life in Alaska, where daily she faces the many pressures of raising her toddler son Tripp alone and maintains the close relationship she holds with her parents."
Over the course of the 10 episodes, "Bristol will be confronted by the many difficult life decisions people must make regarding parenthood, family, relationships and career – giving viewers a unique look at how these true-to-life challenges test her resolve as she single-handedly writes the next chapter in her and Tripp’s young life."
