Amazon Original Transparent Premiering on Channel 9

Channel 9 are set to use Golden Globe winning Amazon Original drama Transparent to promote the launch of it’s streaming subscription service Stan.

The critically acclaimed and award winning drama will have it’s first two episodes aired on the network before moving exclusively to the streaming service which launched yesterday to selected users.

Transparent follows Mort Pfefferman (Jeffrey Tambor) and his sometimes delicate and sometimes frustrating journey in transitioning into Maura Pfefferman.  His adult children (played wonderfully by Gabi Hoffman, Jay Duplass and Amy Landecker) are so self involved and ego-centric they fail to see any sign of Maura emerging.  Mort/Maura must find a way to not only let those he loves in on this change but also navigate the world in a form that feels right.

Easily one of the best dramas to come out of 2014, and easily Tambor’s best work to date, Transparent will probably ruffle some feathers of those who like their milk on their cereal and not next to it.  The plentiful amounts of language, sex and nudity is sure to offend some.

Transparent’s first two episodes will air Tuesday, Jan 27th from 10pm before moving to Stan.
