*Child prodigy Asia Monet Ray, a YouTube sensation and standout student from Lifetime’s “Dance Moms,” has been given her own reality series by the network alongside her determined mother.

Before ever appearing on “Dance Moms” and placing third on season one of “Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition,” the eight-year-old had already traveled the world to showcase her singing and dancing talents.


In “Raising Asia,” cameras follow the rising star as she works to take her career to the next level with the help of model mother Kristie, famous record-holding bodybuilder father Shawn and younger sister, Bella Blu, who are there every step of the way to support Asia’s journey to the top.

“Raising Asia” debuts Tuesday, July 29, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Fourteen half-hour episodes have been ordered for this season.
