Jeffrey Tambor has called the upcoming
comedy-drama Transparent a “game changer.”
In the 10-episode Amazon.com original
series created and directed by Jill Soloway (Six Feet Under,
United States of Tara), Tambor plays Moira, a transgender woman.
Moira's adult children are played by Gaby Hoffmann, Jay Duplass and
Amy Landecker, whose character is either bisexual or gay.
Transparent, which will be
released in its entirety on September 26, also co-stars Judith Light
as Mom and Carrie Brownstein as Syd.
“This is a, it's a game changer,”
Tambor told the
AFP during the show's premiere party. “There's nothing like
this on television. … And I couldn't be more proud.”
“I loved the story,” Brownstein
said. “I was excited it was for Amazon. I'm excited that people
can watch it all at once.”
