Bruce Jenner’s still untitled 8-part docuseries to be aired on E! this July will chronicle his journey transitioning from a male to female. The series will reveal not only how Bruce is handling the transition, but will also include reactions from his family along the way. But it’s not all heavy-handed, serious stuff, says Bruce. He insists there will be plenty of lighthearted, “fun” moments too, like how he’ll have to adapt his golf game when he’s walking around with new breasts. TMZ’s production sources say “Bruce’s golf game will be front and center. Bruce is a great golfer, and apparently it’s not an easy transition to swing with breasts.” The show, intended to educate the public and provide hope for those going through gender transitioning, also seeks to entertain. Sources tell TMZ that “If all you have is a downer, you don’t have a show.” Having been a staple on Keeping Up with the Kardashians for eons now, one would guess Bruce is somewhat of an expert on what makes good reality TV.
Since the show intends to balance “the dark moments, the lighthearted moments and moments that are just plain hilarious,” it’s anyone’s guess what scenes may be included. We’re promised a glimpse into the cosmetic procedures Bruce will undergo in gender reassignment as well as the social aspects of his life, such as the wine and cheese parties Bruce likes to host with his “girlfriends.” Nothing is cemented in terms of “must haves” yet, but a production source said, “There will be a happy medium. Bruce has a great sense of humor and it will be showcased. But the show will deal with the very serious issues Bruce is committed to showing.”

Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Programming and Development, E! tells us, “Bruce is incredibly courageous and an inspiration, and we are proud to be entrusted with this deeply personal and important story,” adding, “This series will present an unfiltered look as Bruce boldly steps into uncharted territory and is true to himself for the first time.” As executive producer on the series, Bruce may have a big say in what gets aired and what hits the cutting room floor. The series will be produced by Bunim/Murray Productions, a company that has documented LGBT stories for more than 20 years now.
The documentary series premieres Sunday, July 26, at 9 p.m. ET on E!
