via The Hollywood Reporter:

The series will intimately follow Ben, his family and friends as they support each other through the unexpected journey and watch Charlie slowly become Carly, as she experiences the many stages of her transition from male to female. The show is described as a generational story of a loving family and circle of friends, supporting each other through the unfamiliar and unexpected situation. [...]

"At RSP, we love family stories, and we couldn’t be more excited that ABC Family is helping us share this heartwarming story of how an ordinary teenager grapples with a challenging and unexpected family situation," Seacrest said. "We feel audiences will find Ben’s story relatable on a number of different levels, because at the end of the day, family is family unconditionally."

Nick Jonas Shaves His Chest, Plays Crotchball With Ryan Seacrest: VIDEO

Jonas

Nick Jonas dropped by "On Air with Ryan Seacrest" this morning and found himself getting more than he bargained for. His much talked about crotch was commandeered for a game of "Crotch Ball" that had a distinctive air of truth or dare to it. As Gossip Cop notes: "The rules were simple. Seacrest attempted to throw a ball through a hoop that was attached to Jonas’ waist (above his crotch). If he missed, the “Jealous” singer had to perform a dare."

Jonas was quite adept at moving his crotch as needed. However, no doubt trying to force a dare, Seacrest threw a wild shot that Jonas' crotch couldn't handle. The result? He had to shave his chest. Well, a part of it at least. As Jonas prepared to shave a swatch of his naturally hairy chest, Seacrest turned the conversation to Jonas' hair down there:

“Do you manscape anything else? You manscape.” Jonas responded coyly, “Sometimes. I don’t do everything.” Seacrest exclaimed, “Nick Jonas shaving his chest. This is something I just dream about.”

Hitmaker Sam Smith sat down this week with Ryan Seacrest to talk about songwriting, success, and his league of fans that call themselves the "Sam Fam".

Smith tells Seacrest that his track "I'm Not the Only One" benefits from the fact that he was hung over and had told himself he was not going to record that day. He also talks about how he hasn't traditionally been a fan of male singers, and worried before his voice broke as an adolescent that he would no longer be able to sing the female divas when it went deep.

Smith reveals how he overcame that, and made Whitney Houston's "How Will I Know" part of his repertoire. Smith is also became close with Mary J. Blige after doing a Disclosure show together, and she calls in to the show to surprise him.
