If you were wondering how Whitney Houston's family is faring in the wake of her untimely and tragic death, you need look no further than reality TV -- sorry, documentary television.According to the Hollywood Reporter, Lifetime has ordered up ten episodes of what they're calling a docuseries following the late singer's relatives as they come to terms with her passing.

Houston's mom and daughter, Cissy Houston and Bobbi Kristina Brown, will reportedly be featured in the show, but it will revolve around Pat Houston, described by the trade magazine as Houston's "sister-in-law and manager," and Pat's husband and daughter.

In a statement to the Reporter, Pat made it clear that she's been gunning for a reality show for a while:

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.
