Generation Xers are about to get something they've been longing for since the heyday of the original Beverly Hills 90210: an inside look into the life of actress Shannen Doherty. Doherty, 40, who's gotten quite a reputation for her diva personality, will be taking her wedding preparations with fiance and celeb photographer Kurt Iswarienko to WEtv early next year.

WEtv announced the eight-episode season on Thursday, which is tentatively entitled The Shannen Doherty Project and will follow the Charmed actress' preparations to walk down the aisle, culminating in the wedding itself on the season finale. "This is an opportunity for audiences to get a rare sneak peek into the real Shannen, who has been notorious about guarding her private life," WEtv executive John Miller told CNN. "Her situations are familiar and [that's] what will make this series stand apart from other celeb-reality shows," he added.

Shooting for the project will begin in August, and the series premiere is scheduled for January 2012. It will mark Doherty's third walk down the aisle and second reality show appearance. She was partnered with Mark Ballas on Dancing with the Stars in 2010, but was eliminated in the second week.
