Joe Giudice is making it a family affair.

Teresa Giudice's husband has landed his own Bravo special while the Real Housewives of New Jersey star serves her 15-month prison sentence, and E! News has learned that viewers will see a lot of familiar faces when it  premieres.

RHONJ star and Teresa's sister-in-law Melissa Gorga and her family, including Teresa's brother Joe Gorga, have already filmed for the special, a source confirms to us, adding that Joe's brother Pete Giudice and his family have filmed scenes as well. 

But they aren't the only family members that will appear: Teresa's parents Giacinto and Antonia Gorga will also step in front of Bravo's cameras for the special centering on Joe and his daughters GiaMilaniaGabriella and Audriana's new life with Teresa in prison.

And another source tells us E! News that fellow NJ housewives Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano, the twins who joined season six of the hit series, will also make an appearance. Finally, E! News has learned James Leonard, Jr., Teresa's lawyer, will appear in the special, which began filming in June.

While no premiere date has been announced, our source tells us the special, which will only be a few episodes, will likely debut in the fall. 

Though she won't be appearing on-camera in the special, Teresa will be featured as some of her conversations with Joe and their children will be included. "Viewers will hear her checking in and talking to her family," a show source told E! News.
