A transgender actress is to star in Britain’s first sitcom featuring a transgender character.
Rebecca Root has already filmed Boy Meets Girl's pilot, a romantic comedy that follows the developing relationship between 26-year-old Leo and 40-year-old Judy.
And Judy, like Root, will be transgender.
Created by Elliott Kerrigan, the script was discovered through the Trans Comedy Award.
The 2013 BBC talent search offered comedy writers up to £5000 ($8300, €6200) for the best script that promoted a positive portrayal of transgender characters.
