After months of speculation over whether it would actually happen, E! announced Friday that it will air a docuseries in July that chronicles Bruce Jenner‘s transition from male to female.
Before Jenner’s interview with Diane Sawyer had finished airing on the East Coast, E! announced that it will air an eight-part series about Jenner, 65, seeking out “his new normal.”
The cable net said the docuseries will also explore how Jenner’s transition affects his family. A series title will be announced at a later date.
“Bruce is incredibly courageous and an inspiration, and we are proud to be entrusted with this deeply personal and important story,” said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Programming and Development, E! “This series will present an unfiltered look as Bruce boldly steps into uncharted territory and is true to himself for the first time.”
Jenner is an executive producer on the series, which is being produced by Bunim/Murray Productions. The company has documented LGBT stories for more than 20 years.
The documentary series premieres Sunday, July 26, at 9 p.m. ET on E!
