According to the Daily Mirror, the fly-on-the-wall style programme will follow Tulisa throughout her upcoming drugs trial and air on BBC Three later this year.
The 25-year-old is said to be keen to show people "the real her" in the "no-holds-barred" show.
"Tulisa has had a number of offers but has been biding her time, finding the right one," a source told the Mirror. "Annoyingly her hands have been tied by the ongoing trial, and there's so much she would love to say but is not allowed to yet, legally.

"The series will be no holds-barred and Tulisa wants people to see the real her," they added. "She knows her image has had something of a bashing, and is determined to turn things around."
The former N-Dubz singer and X Factor judge is due to stand trial on 14 July and appeared at Westminster Magistrates Court in December 2013 to deny the allegations against her.

Tulisa and fellow musician Mike GLC were arrested in June 2013 following an undercover investigation by the Sun on Sunday.
The singer is accused of being "concerned with the supply of 13.9 grams of cocaine" to the newspaper’s undercover reporter Mazher Mahmood, known as the 'fake sheikh', between May 20 and May 24.
