The Other Boy

The Other Boy is a light comedic drama series for family audiences, based on the novel by M.G. Hennessey, about 12-year-old Shane Woods as he embarks on a journey of courage and acceptance. To most of the people in his life, he’s just a regular boy…playing baseball, working on his graphic novel, and hanging out with his best friend, Josh. But that’s not the whole story: Shane is transgender and transitioned when he was seven. Ever since moving to Los Angeles, he’s kept that part of himself private, even from his closest friends. But the older he gets, the harder it is to keep that secret, notably when he develops his first crush on Madeline. His mom is very supportive, but his dad thinks it is still just a phase – and the latter’s lack of acceptance may stop Shane from taking the next step in his transition.
