A date for Bruce Jenner’s new docuseries believed to be about his transition from male to female has been scheduled following his ABC interview with Diane Sawyer last night.

The former Olympian, who has not chosen to be identified by a female name or pronouns publicly yet, will reportedly appear in an E! show which will document his journey.

It will premiere on the channel on July 26 and will consist of eight hour-long episodes.

Bruce spoke publicly about his gender dysphoria for the first time last night, saying: “Yes, for all intents and purposes, I’m a woman.

“I have the soul of a female and my brain is much more female than it is male, as of now I have all the male parts.”

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has been undergoing hormone therapy for over a year but is yet to decide on reassignment surgery.

After the interview, the former sportsman’s family spoke out to support him, with stepdaughter Kim Kardashian tweeting: “Your honesty has opened the doors for others to be courageous and live an authentic life! #respect #hero #family.

“Love is the courage to live the truest, best version of yourself. Bruce is love. I love you Bruce. #ProudDaughter.”

While Bruce admits his journey has been difficult for himself and his family, he feels positive about the future.

He said: “If this is the only problem I have in life, I’ve got it made, if it’s only this then I’m okay. I’ve got my health, my family and seven grandchildren. I hope I’m going to be okay, 2015 is going to be quite a ride.”
