(from Discovery Life Channel's press release, January 2015) Discovery Life Channel is proud to announce that NEW GIRLS ON THE BLOCK, previously announced under the working title Those Girls, will premiere on April 2. NEW GIRLS ON THE BLOCK follows a group of highly inspirational and entertaining women from Kansas City, Mo. - all friends, some couples - who just happen to be transgender. After years of struggling with their gender identities, they are finally finding themselves and learning what it means to be the women they always knew they were. Confronting issues with their relationships, their femininity, their families and friendships, NEW GIRLS ON THE BLOCK is an authentic look at lives in transition. The six-part series will premiere on Discovery Life Channel on Thursday, April 2 at 10/9c. As the first series to embed with a real group of friends within the transgender community, NEW GIRLS ON THE BLOCK offers a transformative look at these women's lives as they navigate their daily struggles and successes. The series profiles cast members such as: couple Aiyana and Jamie who, following Jaime's departure from the military, face opposition to her participation in competitive triathalons as a woman; best girlfriends Kassidy and Chloe, who are navigating their transitions together and experiencing many firsts, including their first double date; married couple Macy and Sharon, who are still in love and trying to understand what Macy's recent transition means for their relationship; and Robyn and Andrew, best friends who fell in love after Robyn's transition and find themselves at odds over whether it's time to get engaged.
