Disney has acquired the French drama series, “About Sasha” for Disney+ across Europe (excluding France), the Middle East and Africa.

The new series will be released next year and will consist of ten 26-minute episodes. The series has been created by French producer Jerico TV for France Télévisions’ teen-orientated streamer France.tv Slash.

“About Sasha” follows its eponymous intersex title character who must navigate the turmoil of starting a new high school and dealing with embracing her feminine side after being born and raised a boy. The series delves into her reality of facing numerous forced operations to conform to the gender assigned by doctors and follows her and her family as she moves out of Paris to start fresh in a new place.

Yaël Langmann, the show’s writer and co-directed said in a statement to ScreenDaily

“For me, Disney has always represented a magical-sounding entity whose core business has always been to tell stories. And what stories! We couldn’t be prouder to have such a prestigious partner with such committed choices”

Julia Schulte. France TV Distribution’s SVP of international sales, added:

“About Sasha is a series full of energy and light, emotions and honesty about the difficult subject of the search of identity. The series concerns us all and we are more than happy about the international release on Disney+.”
