Amazon will shine a spotlight on a tale of love and acceptance this November, with the arrival of its new documentary series Always Jane.
The four-part series follows transgender teenager Jane Noury and her family as she nears graduation and prepares to leave the nest. This intimate and unguarded look at the Nourys reveals a family with unconditional love that shines through as they tackle obstacles head-on so that Jane can live authentically. Navigating deeply personal issues, the Noury family’s uplifting humor and kindness is always present, revealing the transformative power of acceptance, support, and love.
“Always Jane is a revealing look at one family’s uplifting and heartfelt journey, anchored by Jane’s incredible candor and wit about her life thus far,” said Vernon Sanders, Co-Head of Television, Amazon Studios. “We know Jane’s triumphant story and her extraordinary family will resonate with our Prime Video viewers.”
“We have been afforded the opportunity with Always Jane to offer a rare look at one family’s journey to acceptance. The Nourys are hilarious, honest, and raw in their commitment to love, and support one another no matter what. It is a joy to watch [and] it’s been our privilege to share their story,” said director Jonathan C. Hyde.
“I see Always Jane as a love story. Love stories always have hopes, dreams, and heartache, but best of all—a happily ever after. My family has always abundantly showered my sisters and I with love and acceptance, and that made all the difference in the world for my transition. My genuine hope is that a family who may be struggling with acceptance is inspired to open their hearts and embrace their very own story of love upon viewing Always Jane,” said Jane Noury.
Jane, who is actively pursuing a career in modeling and acting and recently appeared in Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty Vol. 3 fashion show, is currently enrolled as a film major in college. The docuseries, which includes footage intimately captured by Jane herself, reveals Jane’s passion and gift for visual storytelling.
All four episodes will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on Friday 12th November.
Always Jane is available to watch online on Amazon Prime Video as part of a Prime membership or a £5.99 monthly subscription.
