A show about the late Whitney Houston’s family, “The Houston Family Chronicles,” has just been picked up by the Lifetime Network. The show will follow several members of Houston’s family and will debut sometime later this year.
The Washington Post reports that Whitney’s sister-in-law, Pat, will be the main focus of the show. Whitney’s niece, Rayah, her brother, Gary, her mother, Cissy and her daughter Bobbi Kristina will also be involved with the show.
Pat Houston said that a show surrounding the Houston family has been in the works for years. Pat said:
“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.”
Lifetime writes in a press release:
“Lifetime has picked up “The Houston Family Chronicles” (working title), an all-new docu-series that will follow the lives of the late Whitney Houston’s family… Whitney Houston’s sudden passing left behind a major void felt not only by the world, but also by those who loved her most, her beloved family. “The Houston Family Chronicles” follows those closest to the pop music icon as they try to pick up the pieces after her untimely death.”
“The Houston Family Chronicles” will premier this year. Lifetime has ordered ten hour-long episodes.
