The show will follow a group of women as they navigate life as transgenders.
“‘TransAmerica’ is a groundbreaking docuseries that will blow the roof off stereotypes and set the record straight as we experience the lives of these fun, stunning women. I am so happy to be a part of telling their fierce story,” said Tyra.
One of the show’s stars, Carmen Carrera, also weighed in on the news.
