It will chronicle not only Michaels' life as a rock star on tour, but time with his family and how he deals with being on the road.

"Bret is like family to us and has always been a huge hit on the network," said Jeff Olde, executive vice president of original programming and production at VH1. "Seeing Bret not only as a rock icon, but also in his real life with his kids, Raine and Jorja, and their mother Kristi gives real access to the life of a celeb who puts his family above all else."

Michaels previously headlined the reality dating show Rock of Love on VH1, which ran for three seasons.
