The network has ordered 10 hourlong episodes of the reality show which will feature mainly the late singer's former manager and sister in law.
Whitney Houston will be the center of her family's business once again as Lifetime has ordered a reality show about the aftermath of her tragic death. Tentatively titled "The Houston Family Chronicles", the 10 hourlong episode include Houston's mother, Cissy Houston, daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, sister-in-law and manager Pat Houston and her husband, Gary and their daughter, Rayah.
"The tragic loss of Whitney Houston left a void in the hearts of people all over the world, but certainly none more so than her beloved family," Lifetime exec VP programming Rob Sharenow said in a press release Friday, May 11. "In this series, the multi-generations of the Houston family will bravely reveal their lives as they bond together to heal, love and grow."
The docuseries will follow mainly Pat as she struggles with Houston's passing and maintaining the singer's business and estate. "I have been working with Simmons Shelley over the past few years developing a project suitable for myself and our family. The unexpected passing of Whitney certainly affects the direction of the show. However, it is my hope that others will be enlightened as they watch our family heal and move forward," Pat said.
