Lifetime’s set to debut the new docuseries Raising Asia on July 29, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT featuring child prodigy Asia Monet Ray and her mother, Kristie. The first season of the unscripted series will have a 14 episode run, according to Lifetime.

Before ever appearing on Dance Moms and placing third on season one of Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition, eight-year-old YouTube sensation Asia Monet had already traveled the world to showcase her singing and dancing talents. In Raising Asia, cameras follow the rising star as she strives to take her career to the next level with the help of model mother Kristie, famous record-holding bodybuilder father Shawn and younger sister, Bella Blu, who are there every step of the way to support Asia’s journey to the top.
