ABC's entertainment chief says he just doesn't "get" complaints made by transgender people about the network's new sitcom.
The series "Work It" that debuted last week portrays two men who dress as women to land jobs in a tough economy. The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation said it was offensive to transgenders because it makes fun of the idea of men wearing women's clothes.
ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee said Tuesday: "I didn't get it, but maybe it's me." He compared "Work It" to the movie "Tootsie."
The Nielsen company said 6.2 million people watched the first episode. That's a decent, but not fast, start.
ABC is a unit of The Walt Disney Co.
