Bruce Jenner ‘Journey’ Docuseries In Development At E!

E! is developing a docuseries following Bruce Jenner’s “journey,” Variety has learned.

The former Olympian and newly divorced husband to Kris Jenner of the Kardashian clan, which stars in several unscripted series at the cable network, has generated considerable speculation in the tabloid press that he is on the verge of revealing he is transgender.

The development process has gone as far as the head of publicity at E! planning a meeting with GLAAD about how to handle such a sensitive subject. Variety reached out to reps for E!, which declined comment.

But the project is not far enough along to have a title, premiere date or episode order.

“It’s in the very beginning stages, but it’s a go,” an insider close to production tells Variety.

Kim Kardashian West sat down with “Entertainment Tonight” to lend support to what she referred to as her stepfather’s “journey,” explaining, “Bruce should tell his story his way. I think everyone goes through things in life, but I do think that that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he’ll share whenever the time is right.”

    Come on people ..put yourself in his shoes.. do you really think anyone who is already famous is goig to put himself thru all that drastic change for you? NO he is really in pain to go thru his life not being what he always believe she is ..A WOMAN. You can not judge because you are not perfect and you are not god your turn will come for what ever your sins or bad choices you have done. leave others alone and get the dirt of your eye before you try to get the dirt of someone elses eye.

    I have always liked Bruce Jenner. He seems like a pretty decent human being. It is now obvious that he is going to come out as transgender, and I wish him a lot of luck in his “new life”, but I have to admit, it is still hard to believe that the same guy who was the gold medal hero at the 1976 Olympics and whose image on that Wheaties box is arguably the most famous of all the “sports” Wheaties boxes, is preparing to be a woman. It is still a little hard to comprehend, but this is now who he’s going to be, and again, all the luck in the world to him.

    the question is: is he getting a reality show because he’s becoming a woman? Or is he becoming a woman so he can get his own reality show?

    that they clearly do not deserve.

    Isn’t it sad that human beings love to watch a freak show and are willing to pay for the delight of judging and laughing at others, so much so that the very people that know they will be left at take the money and left him sells all the way to the bank.

    If it excites people to think that rather then promote physical fitnessor to coach promising new athletes to follow in his footsteps, the Bruce Jenner needs to find ways to get the press to catch him wearing nail polish or putting on a pair falsies.

    I am so unimpressed by what this old man has done to his family and now to himself for the mighty dollar.

    I just find it sad that Bruce has been brainwashed into thinking everything has to be in front of cameras for money. This is a very private, personal matter but I do wish him all the best as he finds happiness.
