(NNPA)—A reality series chronicling the life of former supermodel Beverly Johnson will debut early next year, the Oprah Winfrey Network recently announced.

“Beverly’s Full House” will follow the beauty queen and her family as they adjust to living under one roof.

“Johnson steps out of her role as glamorous fashion icon and opens her home to her daughter Anansa and son-in-law David and their newborn baby Ava, in an effort to reconnect with her daughter and to help her growing family get ahead financially in a tough economy,” an OWN news release stated.

The show, described as “humorous and heartfelt,” will show Johnson’s and Anansa’s attempts to repair their strained relationship and undo past wrongs. Throughout the season, viewers will witness the drama, good times and bad times as Johnson’s family comes together.

The series will debut in February.

OWN is pushing forward with new programming despite a rocky start. The New York Times reported that its viewership fell in February from an average of 505,000 viewers at its January launch to an average of 135,000.

The network received a $12 million cash infusion from its parent company Discovery Communications but still struggled to take off. Winfrey stepped in as the CEO of the network in July.
