Sex-change series on sked

Sundance web links up with Logo for 'TransGeneration'

NEW YORK — The Sundance Channel has greenlit “TransGeneration,” an eight-episode original documentary series focusing on four college students who are getting sex-change operations.

“TransGeneration” illustrates Sundance Channel’s commitment to taking on original programming from outside suppliers, having commissioned “Iconoclasts” on May 10, a series of six profiles of creative people, from @radical.media, in partnership with the Conde Nast Media Group and Grey Goose Entertainment.

For “TransGeneration,” Sundance has linked up with Logo, the new cable network aimed at gays and lesbians. Sundance is putting up more of the production cost, so it gets the exclusive first window, beginning Sept. 20. Logo, which opens for business June 30, will pick the show up in the first quarter. (Viacom owns Logo and has a minority stake in Sundance, along with Robert Redford and NBC Universal.)

Cameras have followed the “TransGeneration” students from four different colleges (Smith, Michigan State, U. of Colorado and California State) since September.

The director and supervising producer of “TransGeneration” is Jeremy Simmons (“Gay Hollywood”), and the exec producers are Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, who run World of Wonder, which put together theatrical docu “Inside Deep Throat.”

Exec producers for Sundance Channel are Laura Michalchyshyn and Adam Pincus. For Logo, the exec producers are Lauren Lazin and Eileen Opatut.
