6 Episodes

Sü moved from South Carolina to Canada to come out as a transgender woman and start life over again. She took out a loan and got a computer science degree. She got a 9 to 5. She got a gym membership. But now she's unemployed and crashing with her eco-terrorrist ex. Will Sü claw her way back to her old life or, to her horror, adapt and thrive?

"Transgender" is a new cultural hotspot and The Switch lights fires not just as the first trans sitcom (with trans actors in trans roles) but also through its smart humor and provocative content. In it, we follow our cast as they emerge from isolation to build a community. From working data entry to moonlighting as a text- message dominatrix, from affordable housing to assassinating oil executives for carbon offsets, The Switch tackles today's world with wit and bravado.
