Kara DioGuardi is getting a second Bravo reality show.

Bravo says it has ordered "Kara," a new docu-series exploring the life and career of the U.S. songwriter.

The former "American Idol" panelist will also be seen as the head judge on Bravo's songwriting competition series, "Platinum Hit," which is to premiere Monday.

"'Kara' is the perfect addition to our latest development slate," Eli Lehrer, Bravo's vice president of development, said in a statement Thursday.

"People have one perception of DioGuardi, but this series will peek behind the curtain and reveal much more interesting and multi-faceted aspects of this incredibly successful, talented artist and business woman. We believe her dynamic personality and fascinating career will resonate with our audience and reflect our pop-culture brand."

"I am excited to broaden my relationship with Bravo," added DioGuardi. "I am a fan of the network and appreciate how their programming gives the audience a birds-eye view into different industries and really uncovers what makes people tick."
