Transparent coming to Amazon Prime

August 28, 2014

Amazon will premiere all ten episodes of the highly-anticipated dark comedy Transparent on September 26th exclusively on Amazon Prime Instant Video in the UK and US.

Written and directed by Emmy-nominee and 2013 Sundance Best Director winner Soloway, Transparent is a ten episode, half hour novelistic series that explores family, relationships and love.

Amazon Prime members can watch the first episode of Transparent now and the full series from 26th September through Prime Instant Video, on more than 400 devices, including Kindle Fire, iPad, iPhone, Xbox, PlayStation, Wii and Wii U, amongst others, and online.

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

Transparent is one of the second wave of original shows from Amazon Studios which were piloted on Amazon Prime Instant Video last year. As part of its unique development process, Amazon gives customers an opportunity to provide feedback on which pilots they want turned into series on Prime Instant Video. During pilot season, any Amazon customer can watch, rate and comment on the pilots. At the end of pilot season, that feedback helps determine the shows that become an Amazon Original Series.
