(NEW YORK) — Coming soon to a small screen near you: Whitney Houston’s family.
Lifetime announced Friday that The Houston Family Chronicles, a “docu-series” that will follow the late singer’s relatives, has been picked up.
Pat Houston, Whitney’s sister-in-law and manager, will lead the show. Her husband Gary and Whitney’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, will also be featured. All three sat down with Oprah Winfrey in March for their first interview following Whitney’s Feb. 11 death. Whitney’s mother, Cissy, will appear on the show as well.
A press release put out by the network said the series “will follow Pat and her husband, Gary, Whitney Houston’s brother, as they take on their greatest challenge, supporting and guiding Bobbi Kristina as she faces the world alone, without the one person she relied on the most, her mother.”
The show is set to premiere later this year.
