On the heels of Bruce Jenner's much talked-about interview with Diane Sawyer on Friday, E! has released the details a docuseries that will chronicle his transition to living as a woman. (Ed. note: While Jenner said on the 20/20 special that he is "for all intents and purposes
a woman," he also expressed to Sawyer that he preferred to be referred to as male for the time being, and as such we'll continue using male pronouns here.)
The show, which has been the subject of speculation for months
now, still does not have an official title, but it will be an
eight-part series, premiering on Sunday, July 26, at 9 p.m. EDT.
"The series will tell Bruce’s intimate story and will join him as he seeks
out his "new normal," the release states. Though it will be produced by Bunim/Murray, the same folks
who entertain us with Keeping Up
With the Kardashians and The Real World, there are also some very serious
consultants behind the scenes to help cover this very sensitive topic. These
include writer Jennifer Finney Boylan, who is the national co-chair of GLAAD's
board of directors; Marie Keller, PhD, the founder and director of the Los
Angeles Gender Center, and therapist Susan P. Landon, director of Child and
Adolescent Services at the Los Angeles Gender Center.
"This series will present an unfiltered look as Bruce
boldly steps into uncharted territory and is true to himself for the first
time," said Jeff Olde, E!'s programming and development executive vice
The release also mentions the show will look at how the people in Jenner's life are affected by his transition — and that's the only hint that there
may be appearances by other Jenners and Kardashians.
