NEW YORK (AP) — Lifetime network has set a premiere date for its new reality series about Bristol Palin's home life in Alaska.
The network says "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp" will debut June 19 with two new half-hours airing weekly.
The 14-episode series stars the daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, and will explore her pressures raising toddler son Tripp as she maintains her close relationship with the larger Palin clan.
The former first daughter of Alaska, Palin became one of the nation's most prominent single mothers after the 2008 birth of Tripp. In 2010, she competed on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars." Last June she published a best-selling memoir.
