Jewel's Family Set For Alaska Reality Show

December 28th, 2011 10:43pm EST

Jewel Jewel's father Atz Kilcher has invited cameras into his home for a new reality TV series which he hopes will showcase the beauty of his native Alaska.

Members of the "Who Will Save Your Soul" singer's extended family will now taste TV stardom as part of Alaska: The Last Frontier.

The program will follow patriarch Atz as he prepares his 600-acre homestead for the winter.

The show is set in and around Homer, where Jewel grew up. The town was founded by her grandfather, Yule Kilcher, 80 years ago.

Teasing the new series on her account ahead of the show's premiere, Jewel writes, "Don't forget to watch my family in Alaska: The Last Frontier on The Discovery Channel."

The series debuts on Thursday night.
