"Transparent" (TV show) is an original dark comedy series on Amazon Prime.

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

The novelistic series explores family, identity, sex, and love, and 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 (Light), and their children — meandering Ali (Hoffmann), record producer Josh (Duplass), and sexually conflicted Sarah (Landecker). Each family member spins in a different direction as they begin to figure out who they are going to become.

Guest stars 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.

Season 2

The sophomore season begins with a big, white wedding for Sarah and Tammy — but is it happily ever after? Post nuptials, Sarah gets in touch with her deeper desires, which isn't always comfortable. Now out of the closet, Maura discovers the hardest part of her transition is still ahead, and faces some tough personal decisions about her future. Josh and Rabbi Raquel navigate their new relationship, and the complexity of being an instant family for Josh's recently returned son, Colton. Ali zeroes in on her future, captivated by a new connection with Syd and a prolific feminist mentor.

"Transparent" is created by Emmy-nominee and 2013 Sundance Best Director winner Jill Soloway ("Afternoon Delight," "Six Feet Under"), who also serves as executive producer. 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. Episodes were directed by Soloway and Ganatra and written by Soloway, Bedard, Micah Fitzerman-Blue, Noah Harpster, Faith Soloway, Ethan Kuperberg and Ali Liebegott.
