E! Confirms Bruce Jenner Gender Transition Series

The Associated Press

With his Diane Sawyer special in the rearview mirror, Bruce Jenner’s journey to becoming a woman will be documented by E! as part of an eight-part series, the network confirmed Friday.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the eight-part one-hour series title has yet to be announced, but is scheduled to premiere on Sunday, July 26 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

“Bruce is incredibly courageous and an inspiration, and we are proud to be entrusted with this deeply personal and important story,” the entertainment news site said in a statement. “This series will present an unfiltered look as Bruce boldly steps into uncharted territory and is true to himself for the first time.”

The series will reportedly share producers with Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and Jenner will executive produce alongside Gil Goldschein, Jeff Jenkins, Farnaz Farjam, and Andrea Metz of Bunim/Murray Productions.

Per THR, the series will document the former Olympic athlete’s transition and search for a “new normal.” The show will also examine how the gender transition impacts those closest to him.

In a two-hour interview with Diane Sawyer Friday night, Jenner ended months of speculation by confirming he is in the process of transitioning into a woman.

“I’ve always been confused about my gender identity,” Jenner tearfully said. “I am a woman.”
