Disney+ has tapped Jessica Alba to host a new travel series titled “Parenting Without Borders.”

Inspired by the book by Christine Gross-Loh, the series will see Alba traveling the world to learn how culture shapes parenting around the world. The docuseries will follow the “L.A.’s Finest” star as she immerses herself with families in various locales and explores the parenting beliefs and practices that shape families.

“Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat” producer Kathryn O’Kane will serve as director and showrunner on the series, with Alba serving as executive producer.

Additional executive producers include Andrew Fried and Dane Lillegard of Boardwalk Pictures, Jamie Patricof of Hunting Lane, Doug Banker of Five All in the Fifth and Trevor Engelson of Underground.

The current unscripted slate for Disney+ consists of the Kristen Bell-hosted “Encore,” the parks-focused “Imagineering Story,” “Marvel’s Hero Project,” National Geographic’s “The World According to Jeff Goldblum,” the guide-dog training show “Pick of the Litter” and the competition show “Shop Class.”
