Bruce Jenner’s Transgender Docu-Series On Hold at E!

Plans for a E! docu-series following Bruce Jenner’s transition to becoming a woman have been put on hold, Variety has confirmed.

The project, which was never given a title or premiere date, had planned to follow Jenner’s journey of transitioning into a woman. E! has never confirmed that the series was in development, though Variety learned the cable net enlisted GLAAD to consult on transgender issues.

Jenner, the former Olympian and former husband of Kris Jenner, matriarch of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, has been targeted heavily by the tabloid press, which has long speculated he’s on the verge of revealing he is transgender. Jenner has not commented on the rumors, but his mother confirmed his gender transition in remarks to the Associated Press last month. “I am at peace with what he is and what he’s doing,” Esther Jenner told the AP.

Days after news of the planned series surfaced, Jenner was involved in a car crash in Malibu that left one person dead and raised questions about the fate of the E! series.

E! signed the Kardashians to three more seasons of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” last month. Variety learned the renewal deal does not include Jenner.

The news of production being halted was first reported by TMZ.
