Tangerine Star Mya Taylor Creating TV Series

Tangerine Star Mya Taylor Creating TV Series


The actress sets her sights on a TV series about her transition.

Mya Taylor, one of the stars of this summer's sleeper-hit Tangerine, is in talks to develop her own TV series about her transition. Mya Taylor and her co-star Kitana Kiki Rodriguez already made headlines when it was reported that they'd each receive Oscar campaigns--a first for transgendered actresses in Academy history. Respectively, Taylor would be pushed for Supporting Actress and Rodriguez would vie for Lead Actress.

Tangerine was shot entirely on an iPhone for a reported budget of $100,000. It's U.S. total stands at $700,000 and with home video revenue sure to boost that, it is the definition of a little movie that could, and sure as hell did.

Taylor revealed to Screen magazine her plans for a TV series based on her transition.

"My experience was actually way more dramatic than that of the characters in Tangerine...I would be interested to portray that journey. I'm trying to get a TV series started about it. It will cover the struggle pre transition, during transition and after. I have team working on it and I would be an exec producer."

This is a groundbreaking moment for trans visibility in the media (Transparent, Orange is the New Black, I am Cait), and Taylor's ambitious project will shed even more light on a challenging, but inspiring, experience.
