TLC has set a July 15 air date for I Am Jazz (pictured), a reality show starring transgender teen activist and YouTube personality Jazz Jennings and her family.

Produced by This Is Just A Test, the 11-episode series follows the 14-year-old as she prepares to start high school in the fall, grapples with health issues and enters the dating world. TLC greenlit the show in March under the title All That Jazz. The series also stars Jennings’ parents Greg and Jeanette, and her siblings Ari, Griffen and Sander.

I Am Jazz will premiere on July 15 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.

The series is among a handful of trans-focused reality shows to receive greenlights from U.S. cable nets over the past year. On June 8, ABC Family will premiere Becoming Us and earlier this year, TLC sister net Discovery Life aired the Kansas City-set docuseries New Girls on the Block.
