THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Exploitation? Maybe. But I’m willing to give this series a shot because Sevigny portrays a pre-op trans woman taking hormones. She’s fitted with prosthetic penis to bring a bit of realism to the character and themes in the series include sexual identity and family — she has a son in the series.
But she’s also a hit woman. Television is a tough venue – you’ve got to have a hook if it’s to sell. If done right, I’d say we’ve a chance to humanize trans people for the masses. By all accounts, the trans character is cool and human. Sevigny will certainly be a great draw who, according to some reports, researched the role before filming began.
Hit & Miss is a six-part series scheduled to air this month in the UK, if my information is correct, on Sky Atlantic.
