Discovery Life Channel – the soon to be re-branded moniker for Discovery Fit and Health – has greenlit Those Girls, its first original series.
The series, produced by Conveyor Media, follows a group of transgender friends living in Kansas City, said network officials. The series will premiere on Discovery Life Channel in March of 2015.
The re-branded Discovery Life Channel will officially launch on Jan. 15.
“Those Girls embodies what Discovery Life Channel is meant to be – a place for people from all walks of life to have their stories told without a filter, and I am thrilled that this is the first series we’re announcing as our own,” said Jane Latman, general manager of Discovery Life Channel in a statement. “No manufacturing, no scripts, no concocted storylines, Those Girls is an inspiring, surprising, and entertaining look at an amazing group of women who just happen to be transgender.”
