The program will follow the rapper/actor as he reunites with his wife and children and returns to the studio to record another album.
Jeff Olde, a VH1 network executive, says, "Viewers have always connected with T.I. and we are definitely thrilled to show the next chapter of this incredible artist's riveting life with this new series."
"T.I is such a multi-talented artist and actor, and though he has had some setbacks, there is no doubt he will use his considerable talents to get back on top of both the music and film business."
The show is set to premiere in December.
