‘Transparent’ Creator Working on MTV Comedy

Transparent creator Jill Soloway is working with MTV to develop a scripted comedy series.

The untitled project tracks two feminist friends. After being struck by lightning, they use their newfound powers to attempt to save womankind.

Soloway’s Transparent took home a pair of Golden Globes for best comedy series and for lead actor Jeffrey Tambo. They were the first Globes for an Amazon Studios' original series.

The female buddy comedy is being developed with writers Lyle Friedman and Ashley Skidmore. Soloway, Robin Schwartz and Brillstein Entertainment Partners will serve as executive producers.

“We are thrilled to be in business with the incredibly talented Jill Soloway,” said Mina Lefevre, senior vice president and head of scripted series for MTV. “When she and Brillstein Entertainment introduced us to Lyle and Ashley and shared with us this fresh and funny take on a female comedy—we knew we had to be in business with this dream team.”
