"Queer as Folk" reboot coming to NBCUniversal

The pioneering LGBTQ series "Queer as Folk" is returning to the small screen. NBCUniversal's streaming network Peacock announced Thursday that it had ordered a "vibrant reimagining" of the original British series. The reboot, it added, will center on a "diverse group of friends in New Orleans whose lives are transformed in the aftermath of a tragedy." (Peacock and NBC News share the same parent company, Comcast NBCUniversal.)

The original U.K. series, created by Russell T. Davies, chronicled the lives of three gay friends living in Manchester's gay village. It ran from 1999 to 2000 and included just 10 episodes. Davies will be an executive producer on the reboot.

An American version premiered on Showtime just a year after the British original's debut and centered on a group of gay and lesbian friends living in Pittsburgh. That series, which addressed issues such as same-sex marriage and HIV/AIDS, ran for five seasons, ending in 2005. (For the complete article with photos, Click Here.)
