Bruce Jenner's transition will be subject of 8 episode documentary series on E!

Bruce Jenner's gender transition will be the subject of an eight episode documentary series to be broadcast on E! in July.

The news comes on the back of Jenner's confessional interview with Diane Sawyer for 20/20 in which he revealed "for all intents and purposes, I am a woman".

Speculation has surrounded the former Olympic athlete for several months regarding whether or not he would partake in an interview or a TV series about his until now rumoured transition.

The eight episode series, which has yet to receive a title, will chart Bruce's transition and how it impacts his friends and family and will premiere on July 26 in the US and will broadcast internationally.

Several experts including Jennifer Finney Boylan of LGBT body GLAAD and Dr Marie Keller, director of the LA Gender Centre have served as consultants on the series.

Rumours of the series abounded when it was announced that Jenner would not be involved in Keeping Up with the Kardashians beyond the current season.
