Jeffrey Tambor, Gaby Hoffman
Transparent, the new original series from Amazon Studios, is groundbreaking television in every sense of the word. The show follows the Pfefferman family of Los Angeles, anchored by a remarkable performance by Jeffrey Tambor as Maura.
When we first meet Maura, she's Mort, struggling with how to tell her children (played by Gaby Hoffmann, Amy Landecker and Jay Duplass) that she's going to start living openly as a woman.

The highly-anticipated comedy Transparent will premiere on Amazon on Sept. 26, the streaming service announced Wednesday.
Former Office star Melora Hardin has been tapped for a guest role on ABC's new drama Killer Women, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
Hardin, who also recurred on USA's Monk, will play Nan Reed, the long-suffering spouse of a yahoo husband who browbeats Nan into getting plastic surgery whenever the mood strikes. Or at least he does until she's finally had enough.

It's a good time to be Seth MacFarlane, with a hit movie (Ted) under his belt, a gig as Oscar host in his future, and a mini-empire on the Fox network, whose Sunday "Animation Domination" lineup is overrun with his shows, most notably and memorably Family Guy. Not many shows that got canceled early in its run (after several seasons of incredibly incompetent scheduling), only to be resurrected on the strength of DVD sales and a cult cable following, manage to live on to mark a 200th-episode milestone.

"Will you guys let me know if this ever airs?" It seems like Michael Scott (Steve Carell) is going to be getting a call from that documentary crew fairly soon. When The Office creator and executive producer Greg Daniels announced the upcoming ninth season of the hit NBC mockumentary series would be its last back in August, he promised that the film crew behind the cameras would finally be revealed, as well as the identity of the Scranton Strangler (our money is on Gabe, sorry buddy). But what else should happen before Dunder Mifflin closes up shop for good? Now that the final season premiere is upon us (Thursday at 9/8c), we've compiled a list of return guests, episode redos and other ideas we want the writers to squeeze in — that's what she said — before they change the locks...

In less than a year, Steve Carell will tape his last episode as the incorrigible and unflappable Michael Scott, leaving Dundler Mifflin without the world's worst boss and The Office minus its leading man.
But you wouldn't know that from talking to executive producer and co-star Paul Lieberstein.
