The rapper was granted early release from an Arkansas prison today.
He had been serving an 11-month sentence for a probation violation stemming from his September 2010 drug arrest.
VH1 announced that the as-yet-untitled series will give fans "a behind-the-scenes look" as the Grammy Award-winning artist "is reunited with his wife and kids and thrust back into society at this crucial juncture in his life".
Ten half-hour episodes will also follow TI as he returns to his professional life, including footage of him working at the studio on his new album.
VH1's Jeff Olde said in a statement: "Viewers have always connected with TI and we are definitely thrilled to show the next chapter of this incredible artist's riveting life with this new series. TI is such a multi-talented artist and actor, and though he has had some setbacks, there is no doubt he will use his considerable talents to get back on top of both the music and film business."
TI marked his release from prison on his Twitter account today, writing: "Feels great to be back where I belong...Back in the arms of those who need me the most... The storm is over & da sun back out. IT'S OUR TIME TO SHINE SHAWTY!!!!! Welcome to the beginning of our Happy Ending!!!! (sic)."
The new series will premiere December 5 on VH1.
