Cable network FX has announced plans to broadcast a new drama about the life of a father who realizes he's a transsexual. The show is the latest work of Nip/Tuck creator Ryan Murphy, reports Variety.

The currently untitled show dramatizes a father's realization at being a woman and his subsequent pursuit to transition. The protagonist is a gynecologist who shares a medical practice with his father. Murphy says the series will also show the effect his transition has on his family and career.

Murphy hopes to stretch the show for five seasons.

“The first season deals with the revelation of his secret. In the second season, he begins dressing like a woman. The third covers the surgery, and his inherent doubts about going through with it, and by the fourth season, he's living as a woman and attempting to find love,” Murphy told Variety.

Murphy co-created the drama with writer Brad Falchuk (Nip/Tuck). Together, they wrote the pilot. Brad Pitt and Dede Gardner, along with Murphy, will produce the show.

Gay & lesbian cable channel here! has announced plans to broadcast the highly acclaimed Channel 4 (UK) series Sugar Rush. The show follows the life of Kim, a 15-year old girl from middle-class stock, who is obsessively in love with her friend Sugar, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks.

Channel 4 describes the show as a “riotous exploration of what it means to be young, horny and queer in 21st century Britain.”

Sugar Rush is loosely based on the Julie Burchill novel of the same name.

The British series has previously won the Children and Young People Award at the British Emmys in 2006 and was nominated by the British Academy of Film and Television Award in 2006 for Best Drama Series.

“We are thrilled to announce the acquisition of this jewel of a television series for our network. Sugar Rush is a highly-compelling character-driven series which appeals to our growing lesbian audience. It already has a large British following and we are confident that American audiences will be just as enthralled by this wonderful show,” said Mark Reinhart, General Manager and Executive Vice President Distribution and Acquisitions, in a press release.

Sugar Rush is set to debut on here! this fall.
