TRANSPARENT: Amazon Sets Launch Date for Season 1, Releases Key Art

August 27, 2014 by  

Amazon Prime Instant Video will launch all of ten episodes of TRANSPARENT season 1 on September 26th in the US and UK, Amazon Studios announced.

“We couldn’t be more pleased to offer our customers all episodes of TRANSPARENT in late September,” said Roy Price, Director of Amazon Studios, in a statement. “[TRANSPARENT creator] Jill [Soloway] has an amazing ability to create deep, engaging and rich stories and characters. We think customers will enjoy this fresh, humorous, and touching series.”

“I am beyond excited to share TRANSPARENT with the world through Amazon,” added Soloway. “They’ve been so supportive through this incredible process. Artistically, it’s been a dream come true. I absolutely got to make the show I wanted to make.”

So what is TRANSPARENT? Per Amazon, it’s a “half hour novelistic series that explores family, identity, sex, and love. The series stars Jeffrey Tambor as Maura, who has spent her life as Mort—the Pfefferman family patriarch. When she reintroduces herself to her family, everyone’s secrets finally start to come out. This includes her ex-wife Shelly (played by Judith Light), and their children—meandering Ali (played by Gaby Hoffmann), record producer Josh (played by Jay Duplass), and sexually conflicted Sarah (played by Amy Landecker). Each family member spins in a different direction as they begin to figure out who they are going to become.

“Recurring guest stars in Transparent include Melora Hardin (The Office) as Tammy, Bradley Whitford (The West Wing) as Marcy, Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia) as Syd, Kathryn Hahn (Parks and Recreation) as Raquel, Alexandra Billings (Grey’s Anatomy) as Maura’s friend Davina, and Rob Huebel (Childrens Hospital) as Len. Guest starring roles include Michaela Watkins as Connie, Kiersey Clemons as Bianca, comedian Ian Harvie as Dale, and Cleo Anthony as Derek.”

The TRANSPARENT pilot is still available for Amazon Prime members to watch via instant video, in case you missed it during the Studios’ “pilot season” and are hoping to get a head start on next month’s full season launch. (And if you don’t have Amazon Prime, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial in order to see what the fuss is about.)
