VH1 is investing in a new docuseries that could have a huge effect on acceptance and the transgender community. The Hollywood Reporter has stated that supermodel and businesswoman Tyra Banks will produce a docuseries for the pop culture network called “TransAmerica,” which will focus on five Chicago women who share their experiences of being transgender.

The series, which will be eight episodes in total with each episode being an hour long, is described as an “earnest look at a group of millennial women–who happen to be transgender–living, loving and building their careers.”

Carmen Carrera, a model and transgender activist, will lead the women in the series and Banks will executive produce with Gay Rosenthal, who is also behind other buzz-worthy shows like “Push Girls,” “Little People, Big World” and “Behind the Music.”

Susan Levinson, executive vice president of programming for VH1, said the show won’t focus exclusively on the fact that the women are transgender. “It would be easy to focus on the transgender aspect, but this series is about so much more,” said Levinson. “This is a show about a group of compelling, gorgeous young friends who are on a unique journey while staying true to their authentic selves. We believe that message resonates.”

The show is set to air either late this year or early 2015. What do you think about this show? Talk about it in the comments section.
