LOS ANGELES, CA (May 22, 2012) - Viewers will get the chance to experience the life of one of America's most famous young mothers, Bristol Palin, in the all new docuseries, Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp, premiering Tuesday, June 19, at 10pm ET/PT with back-to-back episodes. Two new episodes will subsequently air every Tuesday, showcasing Bristol's journey growing into womanhood with her young son, Tripp.
With never-before-granted access to Bristol's real-life experiences, the show follows her everyday life as a single mother living under intense media scrutiny that comes from her lineage as the daughter of former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. The series follows Bristol's move from Wasilla to Los Angeles with Tripp and her sister Willow, and back to Alaska as she deals with parenting and disciplining her toddler without Tripp's father. Giving viewers a unique look at the difficult decisions she has to make for her relationships, career and family, Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp will capture how these true-to-life challenges test her resolve as she single-handedly writes the next chapter in her and Tripp's life.
Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp is produced by Associated Television International, with David McKenzie, Jim Romanovich and David Martin executive producing with Lifetime's Rob Sharenow, Gena McCarthy and Noah Pollack. Matt Lutz and Robyn Schnieders are co-executive producers.
The former first daughter of Alaska, Bristol has become one of the country's most high-profile teen mothers after the 2008 birth of Tripp. She has since dedicated her life to being a leading advocate for the prevention of teen pregnancy, working with such organizations as the Candie's Foundation to educate people about the issue. In 2010, Bristol appeared on ABC's hit reality competition series Dancing with the Stars, on which she placed in third. Most recently, she published her New York Times best-selling book, Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far, which candidly chronicles her public and personal life. Bristol also launched her own blog http://www.patheos.com/blogs/bristolpalin/, where readers can get her views and opinions on various topics such as politics, pop culture and parenting.
