Playwright Kyle Jarrow to Pen Transgender Drama 'ZE' for The CW

Deadline writes that screenwriter and playwright Kyle Jarrow and executive producer Michael London (Milk) are developing a project for The CW called 'ZE' that centers on a transgender teenager.

Read the original report here.

'ZE' follows a female-to-male teen and his family in Texas. When the main character announces he is transgender and will now be living as a male, his family struggles to deal with issues of identity, personal choice, politics and more.

A Brooklyn-based musician and writer, Jarrow won an Obie Award for his off-Broadway play A Very Merry Unauthorized Children's Scientology Pageant. Jarrow wrote the film Armless, adapted from his play of the same name, which was an official selection of the Sundance Film Festival. Other stage plays include Love Kills, Trigger, Raptured, The Consequences, Hostage Song (music & lyrics), Gorilla Man, Whisper House (with Tony-winner Duncan Sheik), President Harding is a Rock Star and Rip Me Open.

Jarrow has developed television projects for FX, CW, ABC and MTV. He has written features for Warner Brothers, Voltage Pictures and MTV Films among others. His playwriting work encompasses both music theater and straight plays, and has been presented all over the U.S. and in Canada: including productions at The Old Globe, New York Theatre Workshop, P.S. 122, American Repertory Theatre, Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theatre and Williamstown Theatre Festival among others.

Jarrow is also the lead of the band Sky-Pony. He is currently working on the plays Ana and the American Dream and the musical Noir with Duncan Sheik.
