Amazon original series ‘Transparent’ angles for streaming-TV binges too

Amazon said Wednesday that it will release all 10 episodes of “Transparent” on Prime Instant Video in the US and UK on September 26. Like Netflix’s programs, the dark comedy has critical buzz and a creator with impressive bona fides. Also like Netflix, Amazon will make it available in a big, binge-able bunch. […] The half-hour dark comedy from Jill Soloway, an Emmy-nominated writer on “Six Feet Under” who won a directing award at Sundance last year, tracks a Los Angeles family as its patriarch’s secret life comes out. Skirting outright spoilers, the series’ title is a pun. It stars Jeffrey Tambor — known for playing George Bluth Sr. in Netflix’s “Arrested Development,” among his long list of credits — as well as Judith Light, Gaby Hoffmann, Amy Landecker and Jay Duplass. – Joan E.
