The first promotional trailer for Diane Sawyer’s two-hour interview with Bruce Jenner has been released, and it appears the network ABC is still staying tight-lipped about its contents.
ABC has already promised the interview with the former Olympian will be “far-ranging” but refused to elaborate any further on what Jenner and Sawyer would discuss.
The 15-second trailer only shows Jenner from the back and his silhouette from the side. It does not show any part of his face. The promotional video is accompanied by the words: “The interview, the journey, the decisions, the future.”
Jenner, the step-father of Kim Kardashian, has been at the centre of media speculation about his appearance and gender for weeks. InTouch magazine provoked outrage when it used a manipulated version of Jenner’s face on its cover, adding make-up and the strap-line ‘My Life As a Woman’.
Kardashian has vocally supported Jenner throughout the media whirlwind, which saw InTouch accused of transphobia.
“He’s our dad so we support him no matter what, and I think when the time is right, he’ll talk about whatever he wants to talk about,” she told E!Online. “I just think it’s his story to talk about, not really mine.”
It is understood that the interview was shot in February, before Jenner was involved in a high-way car crash. It will air on 24 April 9pm EST.
