Discovery Life Channel on Monday announced that it will premiere New Girls on the Block on April 2.

The docu-series follows the lives of five transgender friends living in Kansas City, including best friends Kassidy and Chloe, who are transitioning together; couple Tanya and Jaime, who are dealing with child-related issues with Tanya's ex-wife; married couple Macy and Sharon, whose relationship is evolving during Macy's transition; and couple Robyn and Andrew, previously best friends before Robyn's transition.

Jane Latman, general manager of Discovery Life Channel, said New Girls on the Block will put “real back in reality television.”

“[W]e are thrilled to introduce these lovable characters to our audience without a filter, serving as an inspiration to live our lives freely and full of humor, heart and hope,” Latman said in a statement.

“With New Girls on the Block, Discovery Life Channel looks to provide a bridge to a world of acceptance of the transgender community through our honest portrayal – and entertaining look – at these women's lives.”

New Girls on the Block is Discovery Life Channel's first original series. The cable network debuts Thursday.
