NEW YORK — Olympic all-around champion Gabby Douglas is inviting the world along for the ride in her quest for history. Douglas and her family will star in the upcoming docu-series "Douglas Family Gold," which chronicles the 20-year-old's bid to become the first woman in nearly 50 years to repeat as the Olympic all-around gold medalist.

The series debuts May 25 on the Oxygen Network, which is owned by NBC Universal.

The show will center on Douglas, her mother Natalie Hawkins, sisters Arielle Hawkins and Joyelle Douglas, brother Johnathan Douglas and grandmother Carolyn Ford.

She trains in Columbus, Ohio, where she lives with her grandmother while the rest of the family "juggles Gabby's business interests as well as their own lives," according to the network.

Douglas won the American Cup event last weekend.
