Amazon to offer all Transparent episodes free
DetailsMichelle Clancy | 23 January 2015
Amazon has announced that in celebration of its two recent Golden Globe wins, it will make all ten episodes of Amazon Original Series Transparent available for free on Saturday 24 January.
Transparent, which is typically available exclusively to Amazon Prime members, recently took home the Golden Globe for Best Musical or Comedy Series, while its star, Jeffrey Tambor, earned the award for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy Series.
"We're incredibly proud of everyone involved in the making of Transparent — the team took a risk and it paid off," said Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon.com. "Big kudos and congrats to Jill, Jeffrey, and all the cast and crew."
Written, directed and executive-produced by Emmy-nominee and 2013 Sundance Best Director winner Jill Soloway, Transparent is a ten-episode, half-hour novelistic series that explores family, identity, sex and love. The series stars Tambor as Maura, who has spent her life as Mort — the Pfefferman family patriarch.
Amazon has green lit a second season of Transparent, to air later this year.
