The 'Wild Things' actress - who has two daughters, Sam, three, and two-year-old Lola, with ex-husband Charlie Sheen - has agreed to let cameras film her as she comes to terms with the recent loss of her beloved mother and bitter split from Charlie.
Lisa Berger, the Executive Vice President for Original Programming and Series Development for the E! TV network, who will broadcast the show, said: "At the core of this series is a resilient single mom who is trying to get her life back on track. The show will give viewers an inside look at what it's like for Denise to go through these ups and downs while always in the public eye."
Last month, Denise was given court permission for her daughters to appear in the reality show, against the wishes of "angry" Charlie.
A source said: "The judge gave Denise the green light to go ahead with the show, but with certain restrictions and ground rules.
"She is absolutely delighted because it would have been almost impossible to do a reality show if she wasn't allowed to involve her daughters.
"Charlie is really angry. He didn't want this to happen."
Charlie had previously deemed Denise's reality TV plans "greedy, vain and exploitative".
