    Whitney Houston participated in Bobby Brown's infamous reality show Being Bobby Brown in 2005, and now the late singer's family is following in her footsteps.

    The Bodyguard star's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, and mother, Cissy Houston, will be featured in a docu-series called The Houston Chronicles, Lifetime announced Friday. The show's focus will be Whitney's brother, Gary Houston, and sister-in-law Pat Houston.

    According to the network, the show "follows those closest to the pop icon as they try to pick up the pieces after her untimely death."

    Lifetime added that the show will follow Gary and Pat "as they take on their greatest challenge, supporting and guiding Bobbi Kristina as she faces the world alone, without the one person she relied on the most, her mother."

    Rob Sharenow, a Lifetime Networks executive, said in a statement: "The tragic loss of Whitney Houston left a void in the hearts of people all over the world, but certainly none more so than her beloved family…In this series, the multi-generations of the Houston family will bravely reveal their lives as they bond together to heal, love, and grow."

    Ten hour-long episodes of The Houston Family Chronicles have been ordered, and the show will premiere sometime later this year.
