The former member of the R&B music group will topline her own docu-series, "Totally T-Boz" (working title), centered on Watkins' return to Los Angeles with the goal of restarting her music career, this time as a single mother and after recovering from a life-threatening brain tumor.
TLC has ordered four episodes of "Totally T-Boz," produced by John Doe Media, which has already begun filming. The series is being eyed for an early 2013 premiere.
"Tionne dominated the charts for years, turning the group TLC into household name, and her personal journey is as fascinating as her professional one," said Amy Winter, general manager of TLC.
"This series will open the door into T-Boz's struggles and successes, and the people who are there to support her as she works to make her dreams come true all over again."
Expected to appear in "Totally T-Boz" is Watkins' daughter Chase, her brother Kayo, cousins Barb and Chris, best friend Tae-Tae and business partner Tara.
