E! Sets New Jenner Series

E! in July will launch its new reality series profiling the life of Caitlyn Jenner -- formerly Bruce Jenner -- the network said Wednesday.

The series, I Am Cait, will premiere July 26 and will follow the former Olympic Gold medalist as she seeks out her "new normal" as as a transgender woman, according to network officials. 

The eight-part, one-hour series will also air on E! channels internationally in more than 120 countries. I Am Cait will be produced by Bunim/Murray Productions.

The announcement comes on the heels of the release earler this week of Jenner's much publicized first photos in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair and ESPN's announcement that she will receive this year's Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs.
