      A new drama about a transgender teenager has been green-lit by US broadcaster The CW. Ze will revolve around a female-to-male transgender teen and his family.

      After the teenager comes out to his family and starts living as a male, his already dysfunctional family spin into identity crises of their own, leaving him to discover he is the most well-adjusted of them all.

      Ze will be penned by Brooklyn-based writer-playwright Kyle Jarrow and executive produced by Michael London, known for his work on the Oscar-winning biopic Milk, about San Francisco gay rights activist and politician Harvey Milk.

      The show is a first in the USA, as no prime time show has had a trans lead character before. (Trans characters have had their own shows in other countries.)


      The change I wish to see in the world must begin with me
