Mel B's profile rose in the US after appearing on Dancing With The Stars

Mel B has signed up to star in a reality TV series about her life in Los Angeles, for the Style Network.

The Mel B Project will follow her life with her producer husband Stephen Belafonte and her two daughters.

The former Spice Girl and her husband will be executive producers of the show, which is being described as a "docu-comedy".

It will be screened in the States in September and is expected to be broadcast in the UK at a later date.

'Confident, hilarious and entertaining'

Mel B's profile has grown in the US since her appearance as a contestant on Dancing With The Stars, the US version of Strictly Come Dancing.

Earlier this week she attended the premiere of the latest Shrek movie with her former partner Eddie Murphy.

The couple split a few months before the birth of their daughter Angel in 2007 - leading to a public paternity row.

Footage of that premiere is expected to feature in an episode.

President of the Style Network Salaam Coleman Smith said: "Mel B is confident, hilarious and outrageously entertaining.

"We love that Mel has evolved her image and sought new challenges throughout her career while also taking on the ups, downs that come with motherhood and marriage."
