Dancing Ledge Teams With ‘Transparent’ Co-Writer Faith Soloway on ‘Super Sensitives’

Laurence Bowen’s Dancing Ledge Prods. is teaming with “Transparent” co-writer Faith Soloway to make its first series, “Super Sensitives” (working title).

“Super Sensitives” is a comedic drama that follows a group of characters “who are allergic to the modern world,” Dancing Ledge said in a statement.

“I am so excited to be partnering with Dancing Ledge. We are taking on voices and stories I’ve always been fascinated with but have never seen told in a comedic tone,” said Soloway, a writer on the Golden Globe-winning Amazon series “Transparent.”

“Playing against the grain is the most exciting thing as a writer,” she added. “I cannot wait for this challenge.”

Soloway is currently writing the premiere episode of “Transparent’s” upcoming fourth season..

“The quality and big-heartedness of her writing hits you between the eyes from the off, and I’ve been a huge fan of hers for years,” said Bowen, who recently scored Dancing Ledge’s first commission with “Porters” for UKTV.

Bowen added that the story of “Super Sensitives” will be set in the U.S.

Dancing Ledge is currently developing several projects with a pool of established writers, including Mark Gatiss, Chris Cole, Jon Donnelly, Nathaniel Martello White and Guy Hibbert.

The company is also working with emerging talent such as Caroline Bartleet, Daniel Rusteau, Jessica Ruston and Ben Okrent via a writer’s program, monthly workshops and a writer-in-residence initiative.
