Beverly Johnson tapped for new reality show in February on the OWN network

(December 1, 2011) OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced the debut of a new series, "Beverly's Full House" featuring supermodel Beverly Johnson, which is set to premiere in February. The docu-series follows what happens when three generations of Johnson's family come together under one roof --- her fabulous home in Palm Springs, California.

In "Beverly's Full House," Beverly Johnson steps out of her role as glamorous fashion icon and opens her home to her daughter Anansa (a plus-size model), son-in-law David (a former NFL player), and their newborn baby Ava, in an effort to reconnect with her daughter and to help her growing family get ahead financially during a tough economy.

Despite following in her mother's footsteps, Anansa's relationship with her mother has always been fragile. With the arrival of her daughter Ava, Anansa wants to heal her strained relationship with her mother and agrees to move her family into Beverly's home.

Humorous and heartfelt, "Beverly's Full House" explores the unpredictable dynamic between mother, daughter and son-in-law. Throughout the season, Beverly tries with varying degrees of success to bond with her daughter and son-in-law. Despite sometimes overstepping her boundaries and at times having her intentions misunderstood, she loves her family and is determined to right past wrongs. Along the way, viewers will witness the drama, good times and bad times as Beverly's traditional/non-traditional family comes together, bound by love, and learns to make it all work.

"Beverly's Full House" is produced for OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network by Good Clean Fun. Its executive producers are Jason Carbone, Nick Lee and Beverly Johnson.

Actress, model and businesswoman, Beverly Johnson, made history as the first African-American woman to grace the cover of American Vogue in 1974. She later went on to grace the cover of more than 500 magazines and paved the way for future black models, including Tyra Banks and Naomi Campbell.

A joint venture between Harpo, Inc. and Discovery Communications, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network is a multi-platform media company designed to entertain, inform and inspire people to live their best lives. OWN debuted on January 1, 2011, in approximately 77 million homes on what was the Discovery Health Channel. The venture also includes the award-winning digital platform, Oprah.com.
