U.S cable net Bravo Media has lined up a three-part special following the family of imprisoned Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice (pictured)

Produced by Sirens Media, each hour-long installment of The Real Housewives of New Jersey Teresa Checks In chronicles Giudice’s husband Joe and four daughters Gia, Gabriella, Milania and Audriana as they learn to cope without matriarch Teresa, who is serving out a 15-month prison term for fraud. Joe, meanwhile, will face a 41-month prison term once Teresa is released.

As Joe struggles to maintain order in the household, Teresa’s extended family steps in to support the Giudices as they prepare for Gia’s eighth-grade prom and graduation while navigating the minefield of pre-teen hormones. The special will also follow the family on regular summer trips to the Jersey Shore and the Catskills.

Rebecca Toth Diefenbach, Valerie Haselton, Lucilla D’Agostino, Caroline Self, Jacob Huddleston and Andy Cohen serve as executive producers.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Teresa Checks In is set to air across Bravo beginning on October 11 at 8 p.m. EST/PST.
