On the heels of April’s well-received 20/20 chat with Diane Sawyer in which Caitlyn Jenner — then still known as Bruce Jenner — finally confirmed that she has spent a lifetime certain she is a female trapped in one of the most celebrated male bodies in Olympic history, Jenner documents her transition to living openly as a woman in the much-anticipated eight-part docuseries I Am Cait, which premieres Sunday.

Yes, the show comes from Bunim/Murray Productions, the same folks who bring you Caitlyn’s other reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, but I Am Cait sports a lofty team of expert consultants — including transgender author-activist Jennifer Finney Boylan (She’s Not There: A Life in Two Genders); Dr. Marie Keller, founder of the Los Angeles Gender Center and Susan P. Landon, director of the LAGC’s Child and Adolescent Program — which should keep it insightful instead of exploitive.

In a promo clip for I Am Cait, Jenner addresses the elevated murder and suicide rates within the transgender community — especially among its youth — and voices her longing to serve as an effective mentor and role model.

I Am Cait premieres Sunday, July 26 at 8/7CT on E!
