Oprah Winfrey Network will follow Johnson’s busy family in this docu-drama coming February 2012.
The Oprah Winfrey Network is getting a behind the scenes look at supermodel Beverly Johnson’s life in a new unscripted “docu-drama,” Beverly’s Full House, that will center around three generations of her family who are all living under the same roof.
Johnson was the first African-American to be on the cover of Vogue (1974) and has appeared on the cover of over 500 magazine, but the picture may not be as pretty at home as the cameras follow her attempt to mend a strained relationship with daughter Anansa, a plus-sized model, who moves in with her family weather the tough economy. Add Johnson’s son-in-law David, a former football player, and her newborn, Ava, to the ride and there’s a set up for plenty of action that the network promises will be “humorous and heartfelt.”
