Transgender Teen Gets Reality Show on TLC

Transgender teen activist Jazz Jennings will star in her own reality show, "All That Jazz," scheduled to debut on cable network TLC this summer, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The 14-year-old, who was born as a boy but identified as a girl early in her life, has acted as a spokesperson for the transgender and larger LGBTQ community.

She has appeared on shows such as "20/20" and "The Rosie Show" with family to talk about her life, and has also written a children's book about her experiences as a transgender teen, "I Am Jazz."

The TLC show will follow Jennings (alongside her parents, older sister and twin older brothers) "in her daily life, juggling her foray into high school while navigating how a transgender teen approaches dating and sleepovers all while avoiding male puberty," the site reports.

"Jazz's story is universal, yet unique, and we're proud to partner with her family to share it with TLC's audience," TLC general manager Nancy Daniels tells THR.
