OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network will premiere Beverly’s Full House in February, starring supermodel Beverly Johnson, her daughter and new granddaughter.

The docuseries goes inside Johnson’s home in Palm Springs, California, which recently welcomed new tenants: Johnson’s daughter Anansa, who is a plus-sized model; her husband, a former NFL player; and their newborn baby Ava.

Beverly’s Full House documents the relationship between Anansa and her mother, which has been strained, despite their shared experiences as models.

OWN bills the show as being “humorous and heartfelt,” and promises to explore “the unpredictable dynamic between mother, daughter and son-in-law.”

Johnson was the first African American woman to appear on the cover of fashion bible American Vogue in 1974.

The show is produced for OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network by Good Clean Fun, and is executive produced by Jason Carbone, Nick Lee and Beverly Johnson.
