The 14-episode series stars the daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, and will explore the pressures she faces in raising toddler son Tripp as a single mother while maintaining her close relationship with the larger Palin clan.

The former first daughter of Alaska, Palin became one of the nation's most prominent single mothers after the 2008 birth of Tripp. In 2010, she competed on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars." Last June, she published a best-selling memoir.
