Our Lady J to write pilot for Rub & Tug series following Scarlett Johansson controversy

According to Deadline, Emmy-nominated writer, producer and trans activist Our Lady J is writing the pilot, and the studio (New Agency) are committed to casting a transgender actor to portray Gill, a transgender man who owned a massage parlour in Pittsburgh’s criminal underground sex industry in the 70s.
