Boy Meets Girl: Britain’s First Transgender-Themed Sitcom Airs September

This fall, the BBC will premiere the UK’s very first trans-themed sitcom, starring transgender actress Rebecca Root as Judy, a 40-year-old who’s just begun to date 26-year-old Leo (Harry Hepple).

The ground-breaking comedy – featuring a script that was unearthed during a massive talent search for positive representations of transgender people – will also star Denise Welsh as Leo’s mom.
