ACCLAIMED AWARD-WINNING SERIES "TRANSPARENT" MAKES ITS NETWORK TELEVSION DEBUT ON SUNDANCE TV

First Two Seasons of the Amazon Original Series to Air Starting Wednesday, August 9th at 10PM ET/9PM C

NEW YORK, NY - July 10, 2017 - The first two seasons of Amazon Studios' Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning series "Transparent" will premiere on SundanceTV starting Wednesday, August 9 at 10:00PM ET/9:00 PM C. Multiple back-to-back episodes will air weekly during this limited network television event. Created by Jill Soloway, "Transparent" revolves around the dysfunctional Pfefferman family and their lives following the discovery that the family patriarch, Mort, is transgender, and transforms into Maura.

The first season follows Maura Pfferman's (Jeffery Tambor) journey to being her true self. When she reintroduces herself to her family, everyone else's secrets finally came out. This includes her ex-wife Shelly (Judith Light), and their adult children - meandering Ali (Gaby Hoffmann), record producer Josh (Jay Duplass), and sexually conflicted Sarah (Amy Landecker). Each family member is spun into different directions as they figure out who they aren't.

In the second season the bubble wrap is off - it's time for the whole family to transition. The Pfeffermans realize they must give up their disguises, unspoken arrangements and secrets. By exploring their shared history and legacy, they come to understand that you can't go forward without knowing where you come from. Ultimately, everyone will open their hearts, advertise their desires, and test those notoriously wobbly boundaries as each Pfefferman tries their hardest to come out - as themselves.

Below, please find the schedule for "Transparent" on SundanceTV:

'Pilot'

An LA family with serious boundary issues have their past and future unravel when a dramatic admission causes everyone's secrets to spill out.

'The Letting Go'

Maura embraces her new journey, but nothing about life as a woman is easy - making friends, finding a new community, and above all, coming out to her children. Sarah introduces her husband (Rob Huebel) to her ex-girlfriend Tammy (Melora Hardin). Josh pays a visit to his ex-babysitter Rita (Brett Paesel), as Ali gets closer to her trainer.

Maura finally comes out to Ali, and they join Sarah on a field trip to the mall - where they all get rude lessons in womanhood. Josh is forced to confront his past thanks to questions from Syd (Carrie Brownstein) about his longtime relationship with Rita.

'Wedge'

When Shelly's husband Ed (Lawrence Pressman) goes missing, Sarah, Josh and Ali set out to find him, and instead find themselves lost in their past. Ali can no longer keep Maura's secret from Josh, which sends him into a tailspin. When Maura runs into a Pfefferman family friend she takes a stand for her new identity.

'The Wilderness'

As they struggle to come to terms with Maura, Josh looks for answers from a rabbi named Raquel (Kathryn Hahn), and Ali looks for answers in a Gender Studies class with Syd. Sarah is left to answer questions from her own kids, who meet Maura for the first time.

'Why Do We Cover the Mirrors?'

A funeral brings all the Pfeffermans together and reunites them with their past - Shelley and Maura with old friends, Sarah with her ex, and Josh with his teenage babysitter - who brings a 17-year-old boy. Just when they thought there were no more secrets, the family busts out a few more.

Maura takes Ali to UCLA to discuss graduate school where they meet feminist scholar, Leslie Mackinaw (Cherry Jones) - Maura's old nemesis. Sarah has a run-in with Len and Barb, and begins a sexual fantasy life with a domineering figure from her past.

'Cherry Blossoms'

Josh bonds with Colton, but it comes with a price. Sarah endures a disastrous school gala, feeling more like an outsider than ever. Ali and Syd are left with some questions after a visit with Grandma Rose (Shannon Welles) - leading to a flashback uncovering the origins of Tante Gittel's (Hari Nef) ring. Meanwhile, Maura attempts to find more autonomy, but doesn't have the best luck.

Josh unravels after he confronts Shelly about the past, while Sarah explores some of her sexual fantasies on a hard-won date night. Maura helps Davina get ready for Sal's return from prison and is faced with a harsh reality.

'The Book of Life'

It's Yom Kippur, and the Pfeffermans have plenty to atone for - Sarah tries to make amends with Tammy, Maura struggles to communicate with Davina, and Josh tries to make peace with Raquel. All of the atonement culminates at a break-the-fast party hosted by Ali and Syd, who are deep in a spiritual crisis of their own.
