The CW Is Creating a Show About a Transgender Teen

The CW Is Creating a Show About a Transgender Teen

By Jennifer Grudziecki

The CW has announced plans for a new one-hour family drama called ZE. The show is will focus on a Texas teenager who decides that she is going to be a he. As he makes the transition to life as boy, his dysfunctional family deals with problems of its own. It's written by Kyle Jarrow (author of A Very Merry Unauthorized Childrens' Scientology Pageant) and produced by Michael London, and it will be the first show to feature a transgender character as the lead role.

Of course, we're excited about this for all the great leaps forward in equality and all that, but also because finally, FINALLY, someone is bringing awareness to a gender-neutral pronoun (the show's title, ZE), which will hopefully make the world a much less confusing place.
