Gwyneth Paltrow is teaming up with Ryan Seacrest for a new online series.

The Iron Man 3 actress - who recently launched her second healthy cookbook, It's All Good - is fronting a 10-episode show called Second Chances on the AOL On Network, produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions, alongside her fitness guru pal Tracy Anderson, during which they will share stories of numerous women who have faced and overcome a variety of obstacles in their lives.

AOL announced they signed a deal to premiere the series on Tuesday and issued a statement saying: "Gwyneth Paltrow and Tracy Anderson spend time with women who've overcome hardship, injury, and setbacks to triumph in the face of adversity.

"We'll hear their inspiring stories firsthand, whether fighting back from a career-ending injury or transforming their lives and bodies through diet and exercise."

American Idol host Ryan, 38, who already produces a number of reality shows including Keeping Up With The Kardashians told Variety.com that he is excited to focus on digital shows.

He said: "It's a new focus for us, in the context of this company."

Meanwhile, Sarah Jessica Parker, Hank Azaria and Nicole Richie have also inked deals with AOL to host other new digital shows.

Nicole's show is based on her Twitter feed and the first episode sees her meeting with a specialist about the possibility of getting her lower back tattoo or 'Tramp Stamp' removed.

Sex and the City star Sarah is producing a docudrama on the New York City Ballet and funnyman Hank is hosting a parenting series called Fatherhood.
