Bio Channel has ordered a Bristol Palin/Massey brothers
docu-series from Associated Television International, David McKillop, executive
vice president, programming, A&E Network and Bio Channel announced Monday.
The ten half-hour episodes will follow Bristol Palin as
she moves her and her son Tripp to Los Angeles to live with her friends Chris

years but this will be the first time she's opening up her real life, with her
son and her friends the Massey Brothers."
