“Transparent” creator Jill Soloway has announced plans for a musical version of Amazon’s transgender family dramedy series, with the two-hour special closing out the show reports The New York Times (via EW).
It’s presently not known how this musical will impact (ie. come after or full on replace) the upcoming fifth and likely final season which is apparently still under consideration by the streaming platform.
Soloway says: “It will hopefully feel like Jesus Christ Superstar mixed with La La Land mixed with Flight of the Conchords with something more Jewish thrown in. A little Yentl.”
Amazon Studios Chief Jennifer Salke adds: “Jill has a great idea about how she wants to close it. We’re talking about, is it a full series? Is it a limited special? Is it a movie? What is it? There’s a conversation around what form best serves the creative.” The musical aims to premiere next Fall.
