About Transparent on SundanceTV
SundanceTV will bring the first two seasons of Amazon Studios' Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning original series TRANSPARENT to SundanceTV. Created by Jill Soloway and starring Jeffrey Tambor, Judith Light, Amy Landecker, Gaby Hoffmann and Jay Duplass, TRANSPARENT will appear for the first time on linear television, with multiple episodes running on Wednesday nights on SundanceTV starting Aug. 9 at 10/9c.
TRANSPARENT is a half hour novelistic series that explores family, identity, sex, and love. The first season follows Maura Pfferman’s journey to being her true self. When she reintroduces herself to her family, everyone else’s secrets finally came out. This includes her ex-wife Shelly, and their adult children—meandering Ali, record producer Josh, and sexually conflicted Sarah. Each family member is spun into different directions as they figured out who they aren’t.
In the second season the bubble wrap is off – it’s time for the whole family to transition. The Pfeffermans realize they must give up their disguises, unspoken arrangements and secrets. By exploring their shared history and legacy, they come to understand that you can’t go forward without knowing where you come from. Ultimately, everyone will open their hearts, advertise their desires, and test those notoriously wobbly boundaries as each Pfefferman tries their hardest to come out – as themselves.
