Bruce Jenner's planned documentary series about coming out as a transgender woman is currently on hold as he* as he juggles family concerns and his recent car crash.Jenner reportedly stopped production on his documentary series because he wants to make sure his three sons—Burt, Brody and Brandon—are "in a good place" before he goes forward with the show. Bruce himself is also not in a great place and needs to deal with his own emotions stemming from his recent car crash on PCH, which killed a woman and put even more scrutiny on him for his involvement.

It's not a matter of "if" but "when," as Jenner felt the producers were putting too much pressure to get it done for a May airdate. "There's a 99.9% chance the docuseries will happen," a source told TMZ.

Jenner sent notice to producers two weeks ago. Although no airdate was ever officially announced, there is "no way" is happening in May says the report. What isn't on hold, though, is his interview with Diane Sawyer. No date has been set for that either.

Even though Jenner's sons might not be in the right state of mind to move forward with the show, they and the rest of his children and step-children all have reportedly shown their support.
