About the Show

Transparent is an American comedy-drama television series created by Jill Soloway which revolves around a Los Angeles family and their lives following the discovery that the person they knew as their father Mort is transgender.

Starring Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development), Judith Light (Dallas), Gaby Hoffmann (Girls), Amy Landecker (Louie) and Jay Duplass (Togetherness), Transparent follows the Pfeffermans - a Los Angeles family forced to deal with their long-held secrets together.

Written, directed and executive produced by Soloway, Transparent is a novelistic series that explores family, identity, sex, and love.

The series stars 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 Light), and their children - meandering Ali (played by Hoffmann), record producer Josh (played by Duplass), and sexually conflicted Sarah (played by Landecker).

Each family member spins in a different direction as they begin to figure out who they are going to become.

Guest stars in Transparent include 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, Rob Huebel (Childrens Hospital) as Len, Michaela Watkins as Connie, Kiersey Clemons as Bianca, comedian Ian Harvie as Dale, and Cleo Anthony as Derek.

Melora Hardin (The Office) is a special guest star as Tammy.

The series is co-Executive Produced by Andrea Sperling, with Supervising Producer Bridget Bedard, Consulting Producers Nisha Ganatra and Rick Rosenthal and Producer Victor Hsu.
