(Newser) – Nadya Suleman has just signed a deal to bring her brood of 14 children to television, Us Magazine reports. The “quasi-reality TV series” will periodically follow the family during big events, like the octuplets’ first birthday, said Suleman attorney Jeff Czech, who would not reveal the size of Octu-mom's paycheck.

But Czech did say Suleman’s still-unnamed “television program will not be like the Jon and Kate Plus 8 show." She is "looking forward to providing her side of the story.” Suleman inked the contract with the production company Eyeworks, which is now seeking a network deal.
