A Lifetime reality show featuring Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina, along with her mother Cissy Houston and other relatives is in the works.
Lifetime picked up The Houston Family Chronicles, which will be a 10-episode docu-series to premiere later this year. According to Lifetime, the reality show will focus on Pat and Gary “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.”
Pat Houston was the sister-in-law and manager of the late singer. Pat, who is also over the late singer’s estate, is helping care for 19-year old Bobbi Kristina.
The show will also star Pat’s daughter Rayah, her husband Gary, Dionne Warwick, gospel singer CeCe Winans and other members of the Houston family. It will show how the family is trying to pick up the pieces after the pop star’s untimely death.
“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’s EVP Rob Sharenow told Deadline.com. “In this series, the multi-generations of the Houston family will bravely reveal their lives as they bond together to heal, love, and grow.”
Pat had been working on an unscripted show before Whitney’s death.
“The unexpected passing of Whitney certainly affects the direction of the show,” Sharenow added. “However, it is my hope that others will be enlightened as they watch our family heal and move forward.”
Whitney died on February 11 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The L.A. County coroner ruled that accidental drowning was the official cause of Houston’s death, adding that cocaine use and heart disease were contributing factors.
A report indicated traces of cocaine were found in Houston’s system at the time of death along with Xanax, Flexeril, marijuana and Benadryl, though officials said these substances played no role in her untimely passing.
