    • Synopsis
    • From Academy Award-winning screenwriter and New York Times Best Selling novelist John Irving (The Cider House Rules, The World According to Garp) comes his television debut: Jack Burns, handsome cross-dressing movie star, is about to lose everything, including his mind. Following a childhood spent in European tattoo parlours, in Amsterdam’s red-light district, at a Canadian all girls’ school, and a wrestling gym where he suffers sexual abuse by an older woman, Jack navigates imposter syndrome, his mother’s impending death, and the search for his estranged tattoo-covered musician father. This series, told in Irving’s inimitable voice, offers a modern take on masculinity as Jack tries to grab control of his life while surrounded by opinionated women. And, until he can make peace with his father’s abandonment and discover the truth about his childhood, Jack is doomed to wreak havoc on his own life.
