Bruce Jenner is “approving all the scenes” in his upcoming E! series. Following the former Olympian confirming the reports that he is in the process of transitioning into a woman, a new eight-episode programme will view his journey.
And it has been claimed that Bruce is taking an active role in the production of the show, which premieres on 26 July, to ensure that it portrays him the way he wants to be seen by fans.
To keep up with Bruce Jenner, tune in to Keeping Up With The Kardashians every Sunday at 20:00 on E!
“He is a perfectionist and is approving all the scenes,” a source told Entertainment Weekly magazine. “He seems excited to continue to share his journey, and is happy that his new show has an air date. Over the years, many times when Kris kept criticising him and bossing him around, the film crew wished that he would speak up for himself. He finally gets to live the life that he wished to have for so long.”
Details of the series have yet to be revealed. However, the source added to the outlet that Bruce’s ex-wife Kris Jenner and their daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner are expected to make an appearance in the programme.
Since Bruce confirmed his transition during an interview with Diane Sawyer, he has been praised by fans worldwide for doing his bit to make a difference for the 700,000 transgender people in America. And he is said to be hoping that the follow-up series will also prove helpful for those who may be struggling with their identities.
“He was a motivational speaker,” the source said. “If that community is in peril and if Bruce can contribute to helping normalise it, that’s very exciting to him.”
