‘Transparent’ Season 5 First Trailer: Maura Is Dead in Musical Finale

Amazon has released a first look at the much-discussed final season of “Transparent,” Jill Soloway’s revolutionary Amazon series that ushered in a wave of respectful transgender storytelling on film and TV. The Emmy and Golden Globe-winning series will conclude with a musical film in place of a fifth season, a creative decision precipitated by the removal of the show’s lead actor, Jeffrey Tambor, following allegations of sexual misconduct that cast a pall over the beloved show in 2017. Fans have been wondering how Soloway and the rest of the writers would continue the story of the Pfefferman clan without their titular matriarch, and the answer is finally here: Maura is dead.

A select few have been treated to a workshop of a few musical numbers during a live show in New York last year, and now the masses can hear a short refrain from one song. The snippet featured

‘Tuca and Bertie’ Voice Cast Guide: From Tiffany Haddish to Richard E. Grant
Led by Tiffany Haddish and Ali Wong, “Tuca and Bertie” sports a truly interesting voice cast with some genuine surprises in the mix, including Oscar nominees, Emmy winners, and British TV favorites. The animated adventures of two best bird friends, created by Lisa Hanawalt, takes some sad and dark turns, but the actors prove more than capable of handling the challenges, bringing out the inherent humanity in their animal creations on screen.

Beyond the cast members specified below for individual roles, credited cast members include Emily Axford, Shamir Bailey, Kate Berlant, Cole Escola, Jermaine Fowler, Karen Graci, Georgia Hardstark, Karen Kilgariff, Betsy Sodaro, Sheila Vand, Baron Vaughn, and David Wain, with Hanawalt and executive producer Raphael Bob-Waksberg also contributing voices.

Ali Wong, Tiffany Haddish And Lisa Hanawalt On How ‘Tuca & Bertie’ Brings Fresh Perspective To Animation And Female Friendships

  • Deadline
Netflix’s new animated series Tuca & Bertie follows two gal pals and their experiences as women in the world. More specifically, a bird world. Created by Lisa Hanawalt (BoJack Horseman), the series follows the friendship between two 30-year-old bird women who live in the same apartment building. Tiffany Haddish lends her voice to the character of Tuca, a cocky, carefree toucan while Ali Wong voices Bertie, an anxious, daydreaming songbird. The show, which debuts on May 3, is fun, eye-popping and a little bizarre — but it works. After making its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, Hanawalt talked about how the show is a different kind of story about adult female friendships and Haddish and Wong shared their experiences about playing two Bff birds while trying to get some sponsorship along the way.

Hanawalt told moderator Caroline Framke that she created the characters a while back and they were two of her favorites.
