Beyond working as a Producer on Transparent, Rhys directed the season finale of Season 4 (premiering in September 2017),
and he creates the main title sequence.

After meeting Jill Soloway at Sundance, where his film The Thing premiered, Jill invited him to collaborate on the Transparent pilot. He worked initially as a consultant and later as a producer, helping to shape the award-winning show since its inception. He initiated Transparent’s “Transfirmative” program, which builds bridges for transgender people into the film industry, resulting in Transparent being the most trans-inclusive production in Hollywood history.
