Writer/director Jill Soloway’s (Six Feet Under) dark comedy series Transparent will premiere on Amazon Prime Instant Video on September 26, 2014. All 10 episodes of the half-hour series starring Jeffrey Tambor, Judith Light, Gaby Hoffman, Amy Landecker, and Jay Duplass will be released at the same time.
“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.”
“I am beyond excited to share Transparent with the world through Amazon. They’ve been so supportive through this incredible process,” commented Soloway. “Artistically, it’s been a dream come true. I absolutely got to make the show I wanted to make.”
The Transparent Plot:
Transparent is a ten episode, half hour novelistic series that explores family, identity, sex, and love. 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 (played by Light), and their children—meandering Ali (played by Hoffmann), record producer Josh (played by Duplass), and sexually conflicted Sarah (played by Landecker). Each family member spins in a different direction as they begin to figure out who they are going to become.
Recurring guest stars in Transparent include Melora Hardin (The Office) as Tammy, Bradley Whitford (The West Wing) as Marcy, Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia) as Syd, Kathryn Hahn (Parks and Recreation) as Raquel, Alexandra Billings (Grey’s Anatomy) as Maura’s friend Davina, and Rob Huebel (Childrens Hospital) as Len.
