Transgender comedian and former Voice UK contestant Jordan Gray has landed a new short-form series with Comedy Central UK. “Transaction”” (a 6 episode webseries) sees egomaniac “Liv” and her self-doubting supervisor “Tom” navigate the treacherous world of the supermarket night-shift.
The show, written by Gray, co-stars comedian and Youtube sensation Thomas Gray (no relation). Padding out a hilarious supporting ensemble: comedians Marek Larwood and Will Robbins, as well as stars of the West End stage Nathan Amzi and Jade Johnson.
Jordan: “I was getting bored of not seeing myself represented on screen. And by “myself” I don’t mean “transgender people”. I mean literally MYSELF. Every time I watch TV, I’m like “WHEN are TV commissioners FINALLY have the balls to put a Jordan Gray on screen!?””. So I wrote this show and they were like “fine.”
“Transaction” is coming to Comedy Central UK’s online platforms Wednesday nights, this January.
