LIFETIME DEBUTS NEW FAMILY DOCUSERIES "RAISING ASIA," FEATURING TRIPLE-THREAT CHILD PERFORMER ASIA MONET PREMIERING JULY 29

Triple Threat Child Performer Asia Monet and Her Mother Kristie Show the World How Fame is Made

Los Angeles, CA (June 25, 2014) - Child prodigy Asia Monet Ray is no stranger to the spotlight and her loyal fan base eagerly follows her every career move. This summer Lifetime premieres the all-new docuseries Raising Asia (#RaisingAsia) featuring the child sensation and her mother Kristie, who won't let anything get in her daughter's way. Debuting on Tuesday, July 29, at 10pm ET/PT the road to fame and success isn't an easy one but with her mom by her side, Asia's dreams of becoming a world famous performer are well within reach, at least if Kristie has her say.

Before ever appearing on Dance Moms and placing third on season one of Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition, eight-year-old YouTube sensation Asia Monet had already traveled the world to showcase her singing and dancing talents. In Raising Asia, cameras follow the rising star as she strives to take her career to the next level with the help of model mother Kristie, famous record-holding bodybuilder father Shawn and younger sister, Bella Blu, who are there every step of the way to support Asia's journey to the top.

Raising Asia is produced by Collins Avenue, with Jeff Collins (Dance Moms, Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition, Fly Girls), Michael Hammond (Dance Moms, Amazing Race), Sandi Johnson (Undercover Boss, Hell's Kitchen, Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition), Bryan Stinson (Dance Moms, High Society) and Leola Westbrook (America's Next Top Model) executive producing. Lifetime's Eli Lehrer, Mary Donahue and Kimberly Chessler also executive produce. 14 half-hour episodes have been ordered for this season.
