Netflix is reviving Queer Eye for the Straight Guy
Queer Eye for the Straight Guy is getting a revival on Netflix.
The US reality TV series saw a team of fabulous stylists try to correct the fashion disasters of straight men between 2003-07. It was a big success, winning an Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality Program in 2004 and spawning 13 international versions, including a series set in the UK.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the new revival is pitched as follows: “In a time when America stands divided and the future seems uncertain, a team of five brave men will try to bring us closer together with laughter, heart, and just the right amount of moisturiser.
“The Emmy Award-winning Queer Eye is back and ready to Make America Fabulous Again. With a new Fab 5 and the show’s toughest missions to date, Queer Eye moves from the Big Apple to turn the Red States pink – one makeover at a time.”
Netflix has commissioned eight episodes of the revival, which will be alongside Queer Eye creator David Collins. Unfortunately, we’ll be without the original dream team of stylists, as Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, Carson Kressley and Jai Rodriguez will not be returning to make over the desperate. They may, however, be involved in some capacity.
