In a first for television, the Sundance Channel is developing a scripted drama series focusing on a transgender man reconciling his past as a lesbian activist.
T will be produced by This American Life's Ira Glass, with a script from actor/writer Dan Futterman (pictured) and his wife, In Treatment producer Anya Epstein. Though it's expected to be part of the 2013-14 lineup, little else is known about T except that it centers on a transgender man following gender reassigment surgery, who was previously a lesbian activist at Massachusetts's Mt. Holyoke College in the 2000s.
Futterman, an actor, producer, and Oscar-nominated writer (for his Capote script), has sppeared in many gay roles, including in the 2000 film Urbania, and memorable turns on Will & Grace and Sex and the City.
