Houstons

The new docu-series (euphemism for reality TV show) The Houstons: On Our Own, is coming to the fledgling new black TV network called Lifetime, beginning on October 24, 9pm to 10pm.

The series will follow the lives of the late Whitney Houston's family, led by Pat Houston, Whitney's sister-in-law and manager, and including Pat's daughter Rayah, Whitney's brother Gary, daughter Bobbi Kristina and mother, Cissy Houston.

Whitney Houston's sudden passing left behind a major void felt not only by the world, but also by those who loved her most, her beloved family. The Houstons: On Our Own follows those closest to the pop music icon as they try to pick up the pieces after her untimely death. Pat Houston, Whitney's sister-in-law, manager and most trusted confidant, manages the business and estate of the beloved singer and her most prized possession, her daughter Bobbi Kristina. The series will follow Pat and her husband, Gary, Whitney Houston's brother, 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.

It was previously announced that a 1-hour special titled Remembering Whitney would air on the same day, from 8pm to 9pm. We haven't heard any news stating that is no longer the case, so we'll assume the 1-hour special is still on. 

A new super trailer for the series has been release, and it's embedded below in all its dramatic glory; will you be watching?
