Toddlers & Tiaras star Alana Thompson is getting her own show on TLC. The U.S. cable network has ordered six half-hour episodes of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, which will chronicle the exploits of the six-year-old pageant contestant and her family in rural Georgia.

Alana debuted on Toddlers & Tiaras in January and became famous in the pop culture-sphere for her catchphrases and Go-Go Juice drinking.

The series will also star Alana’s stay-at-home mom June, her chalk-mining dad Sugar Bear, and her sisters Lauryn (“Pumpkin”), Jessica (“Chubbs”), and Anna (“Chickadee”). In a press release, the network promised to take viewers “off the pageant stage and into the unapologetically outrageous family life of the Honey Boo Boo clan.”

The series is produced by Authentic Entertainment and will premiere on TLC in August.
