Caitlyn Jenner is seen in NYC - 6/30/15Caitlyn Jenner has already taken the publishing world by storm, and now, she may take on the small screen, too.

Following her powerful debut on the cover of Vanity Fair, Jenner's journey as a transgender woman could become a plotline on Amazon series "Transparent" -- and Jenner herself may appear on the show in some capacity. A pair of reports suggest that the Olympian and reality star may factor into upcoming episodes of the series, which focuses on a family patriarch (Jeffrey Tambor) coming out as a transgender woman, and transitioning from male to female, much like Jenner has now done.

Speaking with reporters at the Brass Ring Awards dinner earlier this week, "Transparent" creator Jill Soloway -- who based the show on her experience with her own father, who came out as transgender four years ago -- said that Jenner's story resonated with her, and she hoped to incorporate it in some way on the show. Soloway said that she's spoken to Jenner, and Jenner told her that she watched the series with her step-daughter, Kim Kardashian. The showrunner also revealed that she's offered an open invitation to Jenner to stop by the set -- or even step in front of cameras.

"I don't know if she'd want to act, but we definitely want to incorporate the fact that she came out into this season," Soloway told reporters. "Just to have that base conversation somewhere in a scene, for sure."

Soloway added that Jenner's involvement in "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" has made her story that much more high-profile, and said that that visibility would serve to help educate millions about the trans community.

"Sometimes I just trip on the fact that she's the patriarch of the most famous family on the planet," Soloway told reporters. "There's an international resonance with people recognizing that trans people are people too."

Jenner has yet to comment about the possibility of appearing on "Transparent," though according to E!, producers have already reached out to her.

"A source confirms to E! News that Caitlyn has been asked to visit the set of 'Transparent,'" the site writes. "And while the show isn't exactly sure of her acting abilities, they still 'would love her to be in' a future episode."

Stay tuned.
