From creator Steven Canals and co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk (surely you’ve heard of them, Pose takes place in late-1980s New York City and centers on the ball culture that offered a safe space for transgender and queer people of color. The series takes a sharp look at this time period — as related to accessibility, identity, and the AIDs crisis — and juxtaposes it against the rise of corporate America.

Pose features over 50 transgender characters and boasts the largest transgender cast for a scripted series, a stunning and important achievement. Mj Rodriguez leads the cast as Blanca, Dominique Jackson dazzles as her foil Elektra Abundance, Indya Moore delivers incredible performances as Angel, and Billy Porter positively shines as Pray Tell, just to spotlight a few cast members.
