Created by Bilal Baig (Acha Bacha) and Fab Filippo (Save Me), Sort Of is a coming-of-age story that exposes the labels we once poured ourselves into as no longer applicable… to anyone.

The eight-episode comedy series follows the journey of Sabi Mehboob (Baig), a gender fluid millennial who straddles various identities — from sexy bartender at an LGBTQ bookstore/bar, to the youngest child in a large Pakistani family, to the de facto parent of a downtown hipster family — while feeling like they’re in transition in every aspect of their life, including gender, love, sexuality, family, and career.

Produced with the participation of the Canada Media Fund, Sort Of is written by Baig and Filippo, who also serve as showrunners and executive producers, along with Jenn Engels, Nelu Hand, and Ian Iqbal Rashid. Filippo and Renuka Jeyapalan (Kim’s Convenience, Workin’ Moms) are the directors. Also executive producing the series are Jennifer Kawaja and Julia Sereny of Sienna Films.

Sort Of will launch this fall in the US exclusively on HBO Max, and in Canada on the CBC Gem streaming service and CBC TV.

Stay tuned for updates.
