Last summer, soon after the end of the 2012 Olympics, WE TV picked up a pilot episode for a reality TV series starring Sanya Richards-Ross, who won the gold medal in the women’s 400m race. 

Already shot before Richards-Ross left for London for the Olympics, the series will give audiences a look inside the multi-medal-winning athlete's personal life (married to Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Aaron Ross, and also her mother is her agent, her father is her manager, and her sister is her business partner), and professional life, including her physical training as a runner.

Announced this morning, 8 months later, WE tv has greenlit a full season of that reality TV series titled Glam & Gold.

Filming has already begun, with the network's order of six hour-long episodes, set to debut this summer.

Each episode follows Sanya as she juggles appearances, runs a business, and balances life with Aaron and her own family who make up her team, including mom Sharon, acting as her agent; dad, Archie, who serves as her manager; her sister, Shari, who is her business partner in The Hair Clinic, an Austin hair salon that Sanya funds and Shari runs; and, her cousin, Yolandae, who serves as both Sanya’s publicist and stylist.

It's worth noting that the couple - Sanya and Aaron - have a history with WE TV, having had their wedding featured on the WE TV's Platinum Weddings show.

Next up? Gabby DouglasAllyson Felix? Usain Bolt?
