The CW is developing a family drama which centers on a transgender teen.

According to Deadline Hollywood, ZE is written by Brooklyn-based writer-playwright Kyle Jarrow (A Very Merry Unauthorized Children's Scientology Pageant, Whisper House), executive produced by Michael London (Milk), and is being produced by CBS TV Studios.

The show's storyline revolves around a FTM (female-to-male) teen living in Texas who publicly announces her gender identity and will be living as a boy.

“As his dysfunctional family spirals into identity crises of their own, he discovers that he might be the most well-adjusted of them all,” Deadline Hollywood wrote.

ZE is expected to be the first primetime show with a transgender character played by a transgender actor.

Jarrow also penned the upcoming indie film Saint Janet.
