“Douglas Family Gold” is the working title of an Oxygen TV series about Olympic all-around champion Gabby Douglas‘ family, the network announced Monday.

Douglas, her mom, Natalie Hawkins, and former “That ’70s Show” actor Wilmer Valderrama are among the executive producers, according to a press release.

Douglas, 19, competed Saturday for the first time since the London 2012 Olympics, placing fourth in the all-around at the Jesolo Trophy in Italy.

She’s next expected to compete at either the Secret U.S. Classic or the P&G Championships in August.

Here’s more on the TV series from the press release:

Gabrielle “Gabby” Douglas stunned the world in 2012 by becoming the first African American in history to win the individual all-around gold medal at the Summer Olympics. Behind her meteoric rise was a supportive family willing to sacrifice everything for years to help her dream. Now 19, Gabby is ready to do it all over again in hopes of making it back to the medal podium in 2016. The Douglas family shuttles between California and Ohio to support Gabby’s training regimen while also juggling their own lives.  Her brother John is the family’s second Olympic hopeful in track and field, while devoted sisters Arie and Joy are eager to blaze their own paths. “Momager” Natalie keeps this tight-knit family in check, knowing regardless of what happens, “Team Douglas” has already won gold.
