"Transparent" centers on Mort (Jeffrey Tambor) who gathers his three adult kids â€” Ali (Gaby Hoffman), Sarah and Joshua â€” for a talk about the future, but everyone is shocked to learn that itâ€™s not a financial inheritance at stake, but rather the complex legacy of a secret life as a transgender. Everyoneâ€™s relationship â€” to the world, themselves, and each other â€” through the lens of boundaries, intimacy, sex and gender â€” is about to change. Jill Soloway is writing and directing the pilot, using much of the same team â€” including cinematographer and editor â€” she worked with on her latest feature, indie Afternoon Delight, which premiered at Sundance and opens later this month. Filming on Transparent is slated to begin in September. Tambor, repped by Gersh and the Burstein recently reprises his Emmy-nominated role on Arrested Development for Netflix.
Premiere Date: Feb/06/2014
