“They have a lot of chemistry…palpable chemistry!” Soloway added of Huston and Tambor’s characters’ rapport on screen. “It was palpable. I was directing them together and I was watching through the monitor.”

Soloway, who created the transgender-themed series described the second season as “wild” and “wacky.”
