I Don’t Know About This

I think I would be a little leery about a show like this, will they hype it up?
Docu-series to take transgender experience mainstream
By Emma Margolin

Building off what has been a groundbreaking year for transgender people in the media, ABC Family announced on Thursday it has a new documentary series in the works that will focus on a teenage boy dealing with his father’s transition.

“My Transparent Life” is the latest TV show to feature the experiences of a transgender person, following in the footsteps of Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black,” and Amazon’s “Transparent.” With Ryan Seacrest Productions (RSP) and a major television network at the helm, however, this docu-series stands to pull the transgender community further into the mainstream than ever before, where it could significantly reduce prejudices that plague the population.
Or it could make it worst, it all depends on how the producer wants the show and I would be very suspicious of the way the producer might want to go for ratings at the expense of the family.
