Get ready to binge on award-winning ‘Transparent’

SHARE Get ready to binge on award-winning ‘Transparent’

Here in Chicago we are big “Transparent” fans — and not just because the show’s creator Jill Soloway is from here, as are actors Amy Landecker and Alexandra Billings. It’s simply a terrific show, as celebrated by the Hollywood Foreign Press awarding it two Golden Globes this month, for best TV musical or comedy series, and best actor for Jeffrey Tambor.

So, it’s great that the recent Globes wins will be toasted by Amazon this Saturday — making all 10 episodes of the hit show free to binge. And get this: No Amazon Prime membership will be required!

Following the wins, the average number of Amazon customers watching “Transparent” grew over 250 percent.
