Jill Soloway fans rejoice, for the genius behind Transparent has a new project in the works. According to Variety, the as-yet-untitled show follows two women who bond “over their enthusiasm for feminism.” They share a second trait, too: both were hit by lightning a decade earlier after first meeting at summer camp.

The project will team Soloway with Ashley Skidmore and Lyle Friedman, the duo that writes and stars in the web-series #hotmessmoves.
