OWN to premiere “Being Chaz” documentary!

Being Chaz Bono OWN - H 2011

Becoming Chaz was only the beginning.

The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) has announced the Nov. 27 premiere of Being Chaz, a follow-up documentary special chronicling Chaz Bono and his girlfriend Jennifer Elia as they navigate their lives together post Chaz’s gender transformation surgery.

The special will air from 8-9 p.m. ET/PT and be preceded by an encore showing of Becoming Chaz about Bono’s transition from a woman to a man.

Viewers will also see the trials and tribulations of the couple’s relationship as Chaz prepares for his debut on Dancing with the Stars amidst controversy and threats to his life over his decision to participate in the show.

Being Chaz is executive produced by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato.  Elise Duran serves as director and co-executive producer.

Following the premiere of Being Chaz will be documentary special I Am Jazz: A Family in Transition.  It is about the life of an extraordinary family and their transgendered daughter and will air from 9-10 p.m. ET/PT.

Eleven-year-old Jazz and her family face a life-altering decision as the ebullient tween approaches puberty.  Through extensive archival family footage and first-person interviews, Jazz and her family share their powerful personal story as they grapple with the possibility of hormone blocking therapy and issues related to fertility, discrimination and identity.  The special is directed by Jen Stocks and executive produced by Bill Hayes, Kirk Streb, Wayne Mahon and Mark Gottwald,
