SEATTLE -- Sep. 26, 2014 -- (NASDAQ: AMZN) - Amazon today announced all 10 episodes of the critically-acclaimed dark comedy series Transparent are now available for Prime Instant Video customers in the US, UK and Germany. From creator Jill Soloway (Afternoon Delight, Six Feet Under) and starring Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development), Judith Light (Dallas), Gaby Hoffmann (Girls), Amy Landecker (Louie) and Jay Duplass (Togetherness), Transparent follows the Pfeffermans - a Los Angeles family forced to deal with their long-held secrets together.

Written, directed and executive produced by Emmy-nominee and 2013 Sundance Best Director winner Soloway, Transparent is a 10 episode, half hour novelistic series that explores family, identity, sex, and love. The series stars Tambor as Maura, who has spent her life as Mort - the Pfefferman family patriarch. When she reintroduces herself to her family, everyone's secrets finally start to come out. This includes her ex-wife Shelly (played by Light), and their children - meandering Ali (played by Hoffmann), record producer Josh (played by Duplass), and sexually conflicted Sarah (played by Landecker). Each family member spins in a different direction as they begin to figure out who they are going to become.

Amazon Prime members can binge watch Transparent now via the Amazon Instant Video apps for Amazon Fire TV, Fire tablets, Fire phone, iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Roku, Xbox, PlayStation, Wii, as well as hundreds of other connected devices such as smart TVs - or customers can visit Amazon.com/Transparent to watch online.

"We're thrilled to bring this poignant, funny and beautifully-crafted series to Amazon Prime customers and to the world," said Roy Price, Vice President, Amazon Studios. "It's been an honor to partner with such a passionate storyteller as Jill Soloway to bring her vision for Transparent to life and we can't wait for everyone to meet the Pfeffermans."

"I could not be more excited to share Transparent with the world today," said Soloway. "In many ways, the Pfefferman's story is one I've wanted to tell for many years and I'm so grateful to Amazon and my incredibly talented cast and crew for allowing me to fulfill this creative dream."

Guest stars in Transparent include Bradley Whitford (The West Wing) as Marcy, Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia) as Syd, Kathryn Hahn (Parks and Recreation) as Raquel, Alexandra Billings (Grey's Anatomy) as Maura's friend Davina, Rob Huebel (Childrens Hospital) as Len, Michaela Watkins as Connie, Kiersey Clemons as Bianca, comedian Ian Harvie as Dale, and Cleo Anthony as Derek. Melora Hardin (The Office) is a special guest star as Tammy. The series is co-Executive Produced by Andrea Sperling, with Supervising Producer Bridget Bedard, Consulting Producers Nisha Ganatra and Rick Rosenthal and Producer Victor Hsu. Episodes were directed by Soloway and Ganatra and written by Soloway, Bedard, Micah Fitzerman-Blue, Noah Harpster, Faith Soloway, Ethan Kuperberg and Ali Liebegott.

Here's what the critics are saying:

(Rating: A) "Neither fully a comedy nor a drama, Transparent is simply transcendent." - Jeff Jensen, Entertainment Weekly

"Almost instantly achieving a beguiling and bittersweet tone, Transparent represents the sort of breakthrough destined to firmly put Amazon's nascent original programming push on the map." - Brian Lowry, Variety

(Rating: 5 stars out of 5) "Genius is at work on every level here, but never so powerfully as in the casting of Tambor as Maura." - David Wiegand, San Francisco Chronicle

"Beautiful, funny and touching... One of those rare shows that alters the complexion of the landscape with its quality." - Tim Goodman, The Hollywood Reporter

"Transparent is about to become your new favorite show, if not of the most important series for the LGBT television in years." - Erin Whitney, The Huffington Post

"Transparent has the beginnings of a transformative, transcendent, transporting story of a person, a family - and a culture - going through a transformation." - James Poniewozik, TIME

"It's clear that Soloway, Tambor, Ernst and Drucker, and the whole cast and crew aren't settling for anything less than revolution with this show." - Diane Anderson-Minshall, The Advocate
