If you’re a fan of Amazon’s Transparent, the series starring the phenomenal Jeffrey Tambor as a father transitioning to become a woman, you’ll be very excited to hear that a real-life version of the tale is coming to TV.

ABC Family has ordered My Transparent Life, a reality show that follows a teenage boy named Ben who is dealing with his parents’ divorce and the realization that his father is transgender. ABC Family released this statement with the announcement.

ABC Family is best known for its complex, loving and relatable family programming, and we are so proud … to share Ben’s incredible real-life story. … While Ben’s family situation is unusual, the themes and coming-of-age issues are universal, and we think our viewers will find a real connection to them.”

The series will be produced by Ryan Seacrest’s production company. Air date is TBA.
