Bristol Palin is coming back to reality TV in her own show, sans Kyle Massey.

The Hollywood Reporter reported that Sarah Palin’s daughter has finalized a deal with Lifetime for a show based around her life and the raising of her son, Tripp.

Titled Briston Palin: Life’s a Tripp, the show will feature Bristol living in her native Alaska and raising her son as a single mother.

According to ABC News, the show has been picked up for ten episodes and will premiere later this year.

“From the first moment she was thrust into the public eye, Bristol and her son have been the subjects of a huge amount of curiosity and misunderstanding," said the network’s executive vice president of programming, Rob Sharenow.

"This show will reveal the real Bristol Palin and her journey as a daughter, a mother and a young woman making her way in the world."

This isn’t the first reality show Bristol’s embarked on post-Dancing With the Stars. She and co-contestant Kyle Massey filmed a show based around their lives in Los Angeles for A&E’s BIO channel, but it never made it to TV screens.

Do you think second time’s the charm for Bristol?
