Lifetime has ordered 10 hourlong episodes of The Houston Family Chronicles, a docu-series revolving around the lives of the late singer's family (including Whitney's mother, Cissy Houston, daughter Bobbi Kristina, sister-in-law and manager, Pat Houston, her husband, Gary and their daughter Rayah, longtime friends Dionne Warwick and CeCe Winans), with a series launch expected later this year.

The Houston Family Chronicles will revolve around Pat as she and the family continue to grapple with Houston's passing and as she and Gary (Houston's brother) raise their teenage daughter and support the late singer's daughter, Bobbi Kristina, while maintaining the Grammy winner's business and estate.

"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," Pat Houston said in a statement. 

Too soon?

    This is just.....I mean. All they're going to do is show how they're adjusting to life without Whitney. I mean...I get it but I don't like it. Will Raffles Van Exel be making an appearance? Pffffttt!!!
