Amazon's next original series, Transparent, will premiere on September 26th.
Part of a trio of comedy pilots greenlit last October (alongside Mozart in the Jungle and The Outlaws), Transparent stars Jeffrey Tambor as the transgender patriarch of a family filled with secrets.
"The series stars Tambor as Maura, who has spent her life as Mort—the Pfefferman family patriarch. When she reintroduces herself to her family, everyone’s secrets finally start to come out. This includes her ex-wife Shelly, and their children—meandering Ali, record producer Josh, and sexually conflicted Sarah. Each family member spins in a different direction as they begin to figure out who they are going to become," says Amazon.
The dark comedy comes to you from Jill Soloway (Afternoon Delight, Six Feet Under), who wrote, directed, and produced.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to offer our customers all episodes of Transparent in late September,” said Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios. “Jill has an amazing ability to create deep, engaging and rich stories and characters. We think customers will enjoy this fresh, humorous, and touching series.”
Of course, you can watch the pilot right now if you're a Prime member. All ten episodes of the first season will land on the 26th of next month.
