Olympic women’s gymnastics champion Gabrielle Douglas can add another item to her resume: TV star.

The defending all-around gold medalist and her family will be featured in a new Oxygen reality show debuting later this year. The show, which will be co-produced by Douglas and her mother Natalie Hawkins among others, has the working title “Douglas Family Gold.”

The series will follow the 19-year-old’s bid to become the first gymnast in nearly 50 years to repeat as Olympic champion.





Douglas became the first African-American to win the all-around title when she soared to victory at the 2012 London Games as part of the “Fierce Five” that also won the team gold medal.
