Amazon has made no secret of the fact that it wants to compete with Netflix, but so far it hasn’t offered much of a challenge on the original programming front. Though the web retailer has debuted several new shows already, none have attracted nearly the attention of a House of Cards or an Orange Is the New Black.
But that could change with Transparent. The “psychosexual comedy” stars Jeffrey Tambor as a father who comes out as a trans woman late in his life, rocking the lives of his family including his ex-wife (Judith Light) and their three adult children (Amy Landecker, Jay Duplass, and Gaby Hoffmann).
The dramedy pilot earned some very strong buzz when Amazon debuted it later this year. And if the first Transparent trailer is any indication, it’s likely to get even more once the full first season debuts next fall. Check out the Transparent trailer after the jump.

In December 2013, David Chen released a short documentary on /Film titled Scarecrow Video: An Inside Look at the World’s Biggest Independent Video Store (watch that video here). Scarecrow Video in Seattle is the largest independent video store on the planet. The store is not just a collection of movies trapped in old physical media, but many of the films available at Scarcrow are rare and not elsewhere. Scarecrow is revered and admired, counting filmmakers like Bernardo Bertolucci and Quentin Tarantino as previous visitors. And now Alamo Drafthouse’s Tim League has teamed up with Scarecrow Video to form a non-profit collective to preserve the world’s largest “home video” collection of film and television with over 120,000 VHS, laserdiscs, VCDs, DVDs and Blu-ray titles.
