TLC Orders Unscripted Series About Transgender Teen

Transgender teen Jazz Jennings and her family will be the subject of a new unscripted show on TLC, scheduled to air this summer.

The show will focus on 14-year-old Jennings and her supportive family as she enters adolescence and learns to navigate how a transgender teen approaches dating, sleepovers, avoiding male puberty and entering high school.

“Jazz’s story is universal, yet unique,” said Nancy Daniels, general manager of TLC. “Jazz may be known as an author and activist, but she’s first and foremost a teenage girl with a big, brave heart, living a remarkable life.”

The 11-episode series with the working title “All That Jazz” is produced by This Is Just A Test with executive producers Aengus James and Colin Miller.
