Look out Hollywood, Jazz is coming for ya! An inspirational 14-year-old transgender teen named Jazz Jennings just landed her very own docuseries on TLC titled All That Jazz! 

Jazz Jennings is your average 14-year old-girl. She loves high heels and princess gowns, the only thing that sets her apart from her large group of girl friends is that she was biologically born a male.

Jazz Jennings: Transgender Teen Lands TLC Show

At the age of 5, Jazz began living her life as a female. During her 2013 special on 20/20, it was explained that the 5-year-old was put on hormone blockers to make sure that she didn’t go through male puberty.

Jazz is now a transgender activist that many people look up to. She has her own book, YouTube Channel and now, her very own TLC docuseries!

The 11-episode series, airing summer 2015, will follow Jazz around in her everyday life and shine a spotlight on the struggles she faces as a transgender teen.

The show will document Jazz’s school life, home life, and even dating life. During her 20/20 special, she told Barbra Walters, “If any boy declines me because my situation I just know they’re not right for me.

Marjorie Kaplan, group president of TLC. released this statement about the new show:

“We know that families come in all shapes and sizes, but at their core, they are all about love, acceptance and support. Only TLC can tell this family’s story in a way that celebrates and demystifies differences in an effort to help create a world without prejudice.”

HollywoodLifers, are you as happy as we are that this inspirational teen will now have her own TV show?
