The E! documentary series will begin airing July 26
Bruce Jenner came out as transgender in an interview Friday, saying that “for all intents and purposes, I am a woman.” On the heels of that announcement, E!—the home of the long-running reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians and its many spin-offs, on which Jenner frequently appears—announced that it will broadcast a new documentary series following Jenner’s transition and life as a woman.
A news release promises that the show will “present an unfiltered look as Bruce boldly steps into uncharted territory”:
The series will tell Bruce’s intimate story and will join him as he seeks out his ‘new normal.’ Living for the first time as the person he feels he was born to be, the docuseries will also explore what Bruce’s transition means for the people in his life and how those relationships are affected, while offering a better understanding of many of life’s challenges.
The as-yet-untitled series, which will consist of eight one-hour episodes, will begin airing July 26 at 9 p.m. on E!.
The news release also reinforced the sentiment Jenner expressed in the ABC interview—that he is “choosing not to live publicly in the media as a woman.” Instead, he will continue to be referred to as Bruce Jenner and with male pronouns.
