Following extensive allegations of sexual assault and misconduct, director Bryan Singer was removed from the long-gestating Red Sonja movie. The project was given a dose of new energy and excitement when Transparent creator Jill Soloway was hired to replace him, making this the first large-scale, high profile project to be tackled by a non-binary director.

Kevin Bacon has been the object of desire for many a woman over the years, and now he’ll be lusted after by Kathryn Hahn in a new series called I Love Dick, based on Chris Kraus 1997 novel of the same name.
Amazon is bringing I Love Dick to their Prime subscribers as a new series after the pilot debuted online last year. The series hails from Transparent mastermind Jill Soloway, and it looks like it will be quite the steamy story that explores sexuality as it corresponds to a struggling marriage and the principles of monogamy.
Watch the I Love Dick trailer below, but beware that it’s NSFW due to language and nudity. Read More »

What just happened? For years we’ve mocked the Golden Globes as a joke, a drunken farce that leads into the last few weeks of Awards Season before the Oscars. The show is basically one last hootenanny, like New Years Eve for celebrities, before the Important Awards sweep in to codify all that is good and worthwhile from the previous calendar year. (Note: no awards actually codify anything.)
But something happened in 2015. The Golden Globes, especially when it came to awards for TV, did not appear to be decided entirely by self-congratulatory voters more interested in getting loaded with celebrities than in the actual films and shows. The film winners were almost entirely independents, and the TV winners were diverse both in who they represent, and the ways in which those stories are getting to audiences. A big win for Amazon’s Transparent isn’t just unexpected; it is a great step forward.
Now, instead of bringing attention to stuff like The Tourist, the Golden Globes suddenly look almost progressive. The problem is that some of the 2015 awards winners are still things audiences haven’t seen, for a variety of reasons. So here’s a guide to some of the lesser-known achievements the Globes highlighted this year. Read More »

Amazon first started releasing original series last year, but it wasn’t until this fall’s Transparent that they had a real smash hit. The dramedy debuted to great critical acclaim, and attracted enough viewers to “smash Prime Instant Video records.” And so, because Amazon is not stupid, it’s going back for more. The company has just re-upped Transparent for a second season to premiere in 2015.
Hit the jump for more details on the Transparent renewal. Read More »

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.
