Rolling Stone is reporting that ANTM  creator and media mogul Tyra Banks is teaming up with VH1 to produce an eight-episode documentary about the transgender community. The project is titled, TransAmerica  and will follow five transgendered Chicago women and how their sexuality affects their lives.  Model, actress and transgender activist, Carmen Carrera, will appear in the series and will serve as a role model for the cast.

“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,” Banks said in a statement. “I am so happy to be a part of telling their fierce story.”

TransAmerica  will air later on this year or early 2015.
