Former spy Anna Chapman will host a new documentary TV show on Russia's REN TV channel, the station said on Wednesday.

World's Secrets with Anna Chapman show starts on January, 21.

Chapman was part of a Russian spy ring that was broken up this summer. She was later freed as part of a spy swap deal with Russia. She subsequently received one of Russia's highest medals for espionage.

Since returning home, Chapman has appeared on the cover of the Russian edition of Maxim magazine in November issue, sporting nylon and lace and wielding a revolver. She also accepted Playboy magazine's proposal to feature on the cover of its January issue.

In late December, she joined the ranks of the youth arm of Russia's ruling United Russia party, Molodaya Gvardia (Young Guard) in an apparent attempt to launch a political career. She was named a member of the group's public council.

Chapman has also recently accepted a job as an adviser to the president of FondServiceBank and showed up at a launch of a Russian spacecraft.
