Becoming Us, which is from Ryan Seacrest Productions, will take Ben's perspective as he watches his dad divorce his mom, Suzy, before undergoing gender reassignment surgery.

Some are calling Becoming Us the "real-life" version of Amazon's Golden Globe-winning series Transparent, and that is only making us wish that its June premiere would get here even faster!
