Gabby Douglas & Family Snag New Oxygen Reality Show
Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas is heading to a small screen near you. According to The Associated Press, the 19-year-old and her family are set to star in a new series titled “Douglas Family Gold.”
The Oxygen program will be co-produced by Gabby and her mom Natalie Hawkins and will document her journey as she sets out to defend her title at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. “Douglas Family Gold” was one of 8 new series to be announced by the network this week.
“The bi-coastal Douglas family shuttles between California and Ohio to support Gabby’s training regimen while also juggling their own lives,” Oxygen explained in a press release.
Gabby’s brother, John, who will appear on the series, also hopes to compete in the Olympics in track and field. The gymnast’s two sisters Arie and Joy and her momager have also been tapped to star in the family show.
Two summers ago at the Espys, Gabby played with the idea of starring in a reality show during an interview with Cambio. However, at the time, she seemed more open to competitive shows like “Dancing with the Stars and “Survivor.”
