This Sunday you’ll be able to get a double dose of Chaz. OWN will be re-airing the Emmy nominated documentary Becoming Chaz, and following it up with the premiere of the brand new special, Being Chaz.
Being picks up where Becoming left off, as Chaz and Jen work through their ever-evolving relationship, dealing with the media exposure from the original documentary and the threats against Chaz when his participation in Dancing with the Stars was announced.
“Doing the documentary was an intense experience and one that ultimately bonded us,” said the show’s co-executive producer, Elise Duran (Finding Sarah & Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys Season 1). “Chaz and Jen are wonderful people and I know everyone will fall in love with them as I have.”
Also of note, Becoming Chaz will see its DVD release on Tuesday, and word has it that the next issue of Entertainment Weekly has it listed at Number Two on its Must List. Christmas shopping just got easier this year!
Chaz may be off Dancing With The Stars but he will be returning to the television screen very soon. OWN will be airing Being Chaz, “the anticipated follow-up special to the 2011 Emmy Award nominated OWN Documentary Club film Becoming Chaz. Being Chaz chronicles Chaz Bono and his girlfriend Jennifer Elia as they navigate their lives together post Chaz’s gender transformation surgery.” Being Chaz will air November 27 at 8/9PM ET/PT.
