The CW and a Trans Texas Teen

A trans-centric show from the CW?


ZE, from playwright Kyle Jarrow (the Obie Award-winning creator of the hit Off-Broadway play, A Very Merry Unauthorized Children’s Scientology Pageant) and producer Michael London (Milk), is described as a raw, quirky family drama about a FTM (female-to-male) teen and his family. A personal choice takes on controversial public significance when a Texas teenager announces she is transgender and will be living life as a boy. As his dysfunctional family spirals into identity crises of their own, he discovers that he might be the most well-adjusted of them all.  

 There’s no casting yet, no plans for anything but a pilot, but fingers crossed this one goes to series and breaks down more barriers for transgender representation.
