It's been done. I don't see Transgeneration as particularly groundbreaking, but then-- as a member of the subject population, I've seen most of it. I'd say that it's representationally correct, and cut to keep attention, but that the 90 minute promo that was shown at select college campuses was cut much more expansively, and better, than the 30 minute episodes.
I like the diversity among the 4 students selected, and thought that Transgeneration covered a lot of really important issues with them. Equal representation of female-to-male and male-to-female subjects, FtMs at women's colleges, an international student, a student with a disability, 2 students of color. This is really useful, because transition overlaps with everything else that's going on in the person's life, and the flavor of those lives came through, not just another over-medicalized show.
